K. Fobelets is a Reader in Microelectronics and the Director of Undergraduate Studies. She leads the curriculum review exercise, is the chair of the Faculty's e-Learning Implementation Group and is a member of the College's Senate.

As curriculum review lead I have brought teaching and learning in the department in line with the College's Teaching and Learning Strategy and strengthened its capability for preparing Electrical Engineering Graduates for the challenges of the 21st century. I have co-launched the Faculty's new Ed Tech Team with an aim to support the faculty in the pedagogic transformation of its modules.

My vision in research is to support a zero pollution economy by overhauling the use of traditionally scare and poisonous elements for the fabrication of energy generators and storage devices. My main focus is on Si- and carbon-based nanomaterials that are suitable candidates for this technology. My goal is to develop non-hazardous, recyclable and flexible devices that can ultimately be used to create responsibly sourced wearable technology. To revolutionise wearable electrical systems integration, one must combine flexible energy scavenging, generation and storage devices with e-garments without impeding on wearability nor electrical functionality.
