Sam Schlatter graduated from the University of Auckland (New Zealand) with a bachelor in Mechatronics Engineering. He then joined the Biomimetics Lab at the University of Auckland to work on artificial muscles. There he worked as an engineer, completed a Master’s Degree, and eventually joined his colleagues to help build the company that is now known as StretchSense Limited. His passion has now led him to EPFL where he will continue to research the exciting field of Dielectric Elastomer Actuators.

Sam joined the EPFL-LMTS (Microsystems for Space Technologies Lab) in 2015 to to explore Drop On Demand (DOD) printing techniques to manufacture Dielectric Elastomer Transducers (DETs). The goal is to produce transducers with complex geometries and to investigate the applications made possible with DOD printing.
