I am a Microfabrication Engineer at Yoon's Lab at the University of Michigan, where I design, engineer, and microfabricate invasive neural devices for brain cortex studies.
Previously, I was a Nanofabrication Engineer in the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. I hold an M.Eng. in Nanosciences from Universite Paris-Saclay and Bs.c. in Physical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino.
I am passionate about working on the development of biomedical devices using micro and nanofabrication techniques. You can find my CV here.
Here's an article explaining my research:
