PhD Student in EECS
Apoorva Murarka joined ONE Lab in the summer of 2008 as an undergraduate researcher, and demonstrated the contact-printing of capacitive microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) on viscoelastic polymeric substrates. He received his B.Sc. in Electrical Science and Engineering from MIT in 2010, and a M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2012. He continued on in the lab as a Ph.D. candidate and works on novel additive fabrication techniques for suspended nanostructured membranes on both silicon-based and polymeric substrates, and on the operation and characterization of the resulting MEMS/NEMS devices as acoustic transducers.
Current Research: Design and characterization of acoustic sensors and actuators with nanostructured electromechanical membranes, and novel additive fabrication techniques for MEMS/NEMS
Personal Interests: MEMS/NEMS, electronics
