Personal profile


I am an experienced person in R&D in a multidisciplinary domain. I have worked in the development of micro-optical, photonic and integrated optics devices, (bio)sensors, micro-mechanical systems and advanced silicon and polymer based micro/nano-technologies oriented to different applications. I have actively participated in different international research and industrial projects,resulting in the commercialisation of novel products and the founding of a start-up company. Currently I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash University.
