METRAMAT project

The project METRAMAT ‘Enabling the integration of multi-functional reliable metamaterials in real-life industrial applications for enhancing structural and vibrational behavior‘ has been funded under the HORIZON-MSCA-2022-DN-01-01 — MSCA Doctoral Networks 2022 program (2 690 215.19 euro).

Applications are now open!


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.
