2024 Fellow

Tomi Baikie

PhD Institution
University of Cambridge

As a 2024 Schmidt Science Fellow, Tomi will pioneer new understanding of how the body works through non-contact electrical measurements.

Our skin has electric potential variations, but their origins are not known, primarily because they are very difficult to measure over long timescales.

By translating techniques from semiconductor physics, Tomi aims to measure these electrical maps without even touching the skin. The work has direct implications for understanding human physiology.
