Research Program

Microsystems (MEMS) and nanosystems (NEMS) are miniaturized engineering devices that are being developed for a vast array of applications ranging from sensing and displays to portable power generation and medicine. The overarching goal of my research program is to enable the design of multifunctional, high-performance, and reliable MEMS and NEMS. To this end, we study fundamental problems in materials and mechanics, and formulate guidelines for design in the form of process-structure-property-performance-reliability relationships. At present, our focus is primarily on energy dissipation and damping in micromechanical and nanomechanical resonators. This research is supported by grants from NSERC.

Multiple opportunities exist for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in collaborative research that utilizes a range of experimental, analytical, and computational techniques. Microfabrication and characterization are performed at the McGill NanoTools Micromachining Facility. Applications from talented and hard-working students are always welcome!
