Bio


Kaiwen Hsiao a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford in the DeSimone lab. Her postdoctoral research focuses on developing high-resolution 3D CLIP printers and developing stereolithography computational models. Her research interests involve in fabricating micro-architectures for bio-oriented applications and microelectronic applications. Before she join Stanford, she worked on computational lithography as a design engineer at Intel and at Apple camera hardware. She did her PhD at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign where she focused on understanding the intermolecular interactions of concentrated polymer solutions and ring polymers.
