2024 Fellow

Sijie Ji

PhD Institution
Nanyang Technological University

Sijie’s 2024 Schmidt Science Fellowship proposal explores the Internet of Materials, aiming to build a world where humans, objects, and the natural environment, are all sensors, coexisting and communicating with each other wirelessly.

The principle behind the concept is everything has its own responsiveness to various materials and perceives visible or invisible vibrations.

The work will utilize these different vibration levels and design communication protocols, enabling communication through the same vibrating frequency or relay materials.
