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 - October 10-12, 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.
