Successfully designed, fabricated, and tested a novel MEMS loudspeaker in completion of my Master's degree. I was responsible for creating the device concept, designing photolithography masks, developing a process flow, fabricating devices in a class 100 clean room, and creating a custom testing setup to measure device performance.
Master's Degree courses focused on the design, fabrication and analysis of MEMS devices and materials. Hands on experience was gained through fabrication of resistive pressure sensors, microfluidic circuits, electrostatic comb-drives and thermal hot-arm actuators.
