Wade Ingram

Before coming to NC State, I attended the University of Florida and received my B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2016. While there, I worked in research labs with projects on biomimetic surface modification of polymers, characterization of ultra-high permittivity ceramics, and biodegradable electrospun fibers for sustainable textiles. Currently I am researching how to create all-fiber devices on a monofilament using ALD. Outside of academics, I enjoy trail running, photography, and eating all the good food in Raleigh.

Research Interests

wearable sensors, copolymer templating using ALD, textile solar cells, ALD-enabled photoremediation

Current research:

Currently I research creating all-fiber devices on monofilaments for applications in wearable electronics. There are many different types of devices that could be incorporated onto textiles for health monitoring, and my research is on creating them and them and analyzing their durability.
