Ph.D. Candidate, Research Assistant

• Co-invented a leak-tight micro gas pumping mechanism.

~Conducted literature reviews, explored and weighted feasibility of designs.
~Simulated, optimized designs through fluid dynamic and/or electrical field models using COMSOL and MATLAB.
~Fabricated multiple layered devices through variety MEMS techniques from plain substrate till final product.
~Designed, coded, and built the testing setup which includes user interfaces of testing circuits and pressure reading systems.
~Collected, analyzed data through coding a MATLAB based program.

• Led group user-meetings to ensure daily laboratory operations.

• Fully in charge of the laboratory equipment including daily maintenance and repair.
