Thomas Winkler wins dean's doctoral research award

Bioengineering Ph.D. student Thomas Winkler is the winner of the 2016 Dean's Doctoral Research Award Competition, for his Ph.D. thesis, “Microsystems Integration Towards Point-of-Care Monitoring of Clozapine Treatment for Adherence, Efficacy and Safety.”

Winkler received his Diplom in biophysics from the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria in January 2011, and was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue his Ph.D. degree in the United States. He is part of the MIND (MIcrosystems development for Neuropsychiatric Disorders) effort in the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory. His thesis relates to developing a BioMEMS device to enable drug treatment planning and monitoring.

Winkler is advised by ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR).

Dean Darryll Pines created the Dean's Doctoral Research Award Competition to give top Clark School doctoral student researchers special recognition that will be valuable in launching their careers, and to show all students the importance of high quality engineering research. Students submitted their work through competitions at the department level, and members of the Clark School/Departments Board of Visitors served as judges for the competition. Winkler’s name will be added to the plaques in Martin Hall and in the Kim Building.
