Rosana Dias

Staff Researcher

Integrated Micro and Nanotechnologies

Rosana Dias is a Staff Researcher in the Integrated Micro and Nanotechnologies research group at INL. She obtained her PhD in the MEMS area, focusing on pull-in time accelerometers and gas viscosity sensing at the University of Minho, the Delft University of Technology and the University of British Columbia. Before joining INL she was a postdoc researcher responsible for the development of a MEMS magnetometer for space applications, within a European Space Agency funded project.

Her expertise concerns the development of sensors and actuators to address technical challenges faced by society and industry. She has large experience in modelling, design, fabrication and testing of MEMS devices. Her research interests range from mechanical sensors and actuators (eg. acceleration and magnetic field sensing – MEMS and hybrid spintronic MEMS; large displacement actuators, micromirrors) to energy harvesting devices (piezoelectric AlN and EMF-based induction) and flexible substrate-based applications (flexible pressure and temperature sensors, resonators and packaging).
