Dr. Ruch's research interests lie in AI-assisted combinatorial chemical sensing for applications in quality and process control and product innovation. He is the Principal Investigator of HyperTaste, a research effort to demonstrate an end-to-end implementation for AI-assisted rapid testing of complex liquids. Dr. Ruch studied materials science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich and received his Ph.D. degree in 2009 from the same institution for his work performed at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) on electrochemical capacitors. At IBM, he has led research projects on energy-efficient computing systems and sustainable energy technologies.
