Dr. Daniele joined the faculty of North Carolina State University in August 2015. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, as well as the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Daniele’s primary area of interest is the broad application of soft nanomaterials to engineer devices which monitor, mimic or augment biological function. Specific topics of research include wearable and implantable biosensors, organ-on-a-chip models, and human-machine interfaces.
