Dr. Sampada Bodkhe is an assistant professor in the department of Mechanical Engineering at Polytechnique Montreal. Dr. Bodkhe received her PhD from Polytechnique Montreal in 2017, where she developed piezoelectric inks and a technique to co-​fabricate electrodes with piezoelectric sensors via coextrusion based 3D direct-​write technique. The research on the development of these self-powered sensors towards aero-​elastic and biomedical applications was chosen as the 10 Best Discoveries of the Year 2018 by Quebec Science Magazine.

As a visiting PhD student at the Organic robotics laboratory, Cornell University, she worked on SLA based 3D printing of highly flexible actuators. After her PhD, she worked at Composite Materials and Adaptive Systems Laboratory at ETH Zurich, on establishing competencies in 3D printing of adaptive systems, multifunctional materials and structures.

Prior to her PhD, she worked as an Edison Engineer at General Electric aviation, India on structural and thermal evaluation of components for LEAP 1B engines. She holds a master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India and a bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering from Visveswaraya Technological University, India. She has keen interests in building an additive manufacturing platform for the fabrication of intelligent composite structures.
