EUROMECH colloquium 616 – Unification of microsystems and metamaterials for new generation engineering solutions

Chair: Valentina Zega - Politecnico di Milano
Co-Chairs: Varvara Kouznetsova - Eindhoven University of Technology, Slava Krylov - Tel Aviv University

Milan, Italy - Fall 2022


My research interests include the mechanical design and optimization of MEMS devices, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes and resonators and the numerical modelling of their linear and nonlinear dynamic response. I am also working on the design and optimization of metamaterials for different applications.


MEMS out-of-plane resonant accelerometer: torsional mode of the two resonators

MEMS resonator for clock applications: in-plane flexural mode

MEMS Frequency Modulated (FM) pitch gyroscope: out-of-plane differential mode


Several master thesis are available. If you are interested in numerical modelling (i.e. linear/nonlinear dynamics, optimization, multi-physics problems) and/or experimental measurements of MicroElectroMechanical Systems and/or metamaterials, please give a look.
