Berkeley Science Review
Dear Readers,
There’s a lot of energy on campus, whether you’ve seen the newbuildings to house research laboratories on the northwest side
of campus, or attended the BERC symposium that brought

Keeping researchers energized—and keeping research exciting—can be a difficult engineering
challenge. In Whose lab are you wearing? (page 18), Anand Sampat reports on Ana Claudia Arias’s
lab in the EECS department and their efforts to bring flexible, wearable technology to the masses.
