Dr. Bains has written for dozens of publications in her work as a journalist. Her approach has been to follow her technical passions and to spend time really getting to know an area before starting to write about it. Her first love was holography, which led her into 3D displays and then displays generally), and also into optical computing and machine vision. This latter interest inspired her to look more closely at emerging computing technologies generally, and particularly related to intelligent signal processing for robot senses. From here she moved into the area of neuromorphic engineering: creating analog circuits with neuron-like functionality to process incoming signals the way biology does.
Along the way, Bains has also followed many related fields. She has a strong interest in novel electronic and optoelectronic devices, materials, novel mechanics for robotics (such as electro-active polymers), and many other enabling technologies.
