ASSIST Welcomes Jason Strohmaier as Chief Systems Engineer

March 2nd, 2015, 3:00 pm – The NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) welcomes Jason Strohmaier, a Maryland native, as the newly appointed Chief Systems Engineer.
Strohmaier, holder of 4 approved and 2 pending patents, brings a vast professional background from companies such as Advanced Liquid Logic and Honda R&D America.  His past experiences in the consumer electronics space include projects such as infotainment systems on Honda and Acura SUVs and a microfluidics-based consumer platform for molecular diagnostics. Strohmaier says the high-level engineering process and guiding subsystem development appeals to him most and fueled his desire to join the Center.  Strohmaier explains that his past experience “will help him mature the ASSIST testbeds toward a more complete, proof-of-concept compatible with the needs of the marketplace.”

Strohmaier joined the Center at the start of February 2015; he will primary be responsible for leading the Center’s testbed integration efforts.  Additionally, he will work with students, faculty and staff across each partner university in an effort to demonstrate these systems through all research projects involved. Strohmaier’s role will play a key part in the engagement of the Center’s primary medical and industry advisory boards to further refine the research specifications toward the targeted testbeds.

Strohmaier is working closely with Dr. John Lach, the Center’s current Interim Chief Systems Engineer, and will official assume the post in early June. Dr. Lach has been a valuable asset to the Center in his stint as Interim Chief Systems Engineer.
Strohmaier holds a MSEE from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


The NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC) for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) develops and employs nano-enabled energy harvesting, energy storage, nanodevices, and sensors to create innovative, battery-free and body-powered wearable health monitoring systems. This center of excellence received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2012 for five years of research, and will be renewable for an additional five years in 2017.
