Dr Pfaendler trained as a physicist, and completed her PhD at the Semiconductor Physics Group, University of Cambridge where she specialized in cleanroom fabrication skills and low-temperature electrical measurements of gallium arsenide based quantum ridge-wires. Currently, she is a research associate working with Dr Andrew Flewitt (Engineering Dept., Cambridge). In this role, she has worked with the Nokia Research Center (Nanoscience Center, Cambridge) on flexible large-area sensing surface technology intended for the Nokia 'morph' concept phone and works in collaboration with seven business partners on transparent materials for logic on plastic as part of the UK Government Technology Strategy Board FlexIC project.
