Technology Manager, Engineering

Forest Bohrer joined the UW Center for Commercialization in May of 2014, focusing on innovations in chemistry, materials, and engineering. His portfolio includes technologies in the fields of sensors, functional coatings, clean energy, and organic electronics. Forest received his doctorate in inorganic chemistry from the University of California, San Diego, studying organic semiconductors for chemical sensing and organic field effect transistor (OFET) development. As a senior scientist in advanced development for aerospace, defense, and marine markets at TE Connectivity in Menlo Park, CA, Forest developed nanocarbon conductors, chemical sensors for hydrazines and aerospace fuels, and selective metallization processes for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, sensing, and conformal antennas. Forest earned a BS in chemistry from the University of California, Davis, where he also served as principal trombonist in the UCD Symphony Orchestra for two years.
