He is working on the development of environmentally-conscious Microsystems, green microtechnologies and microfabrication, and microsystems for environmental and energy applications. His research interests in the field of sensors and Microsystems include energy harvesting, polymeric and Power MEMS, printed sensors and microsystems, and energy autonomous smart systems.
Microtechnology is a tool that can contribute to the mitigation of environmental issues. The development of the next generation of microsystems should lead to sustainable, reusable, recyclable and environmental friendly devices and systems.
The research of the EnviroMEMS research group is oriented towards microtechnologies for sustainable development, envisioning environmental friendly processes for MEMS production, and their use in applications that could bring benefit to the environment.
