BS, MS, Ph.D., Rochester Institute of Technology
Dr. Puchades completed his Ph.D. on thermally actuated MEMS resonators to measure the viscosity of fluids in 2011. In 2016 he completed a 2-year postdoctoral appointment providing innovating insight on the physical characteristics of doped electronic-type-separated single wall carbon nanotubes and developing novel devices. He currently teaches undergraduate courses in Electrical Engineering and has taught graduate-level Microelectronic Engineering courses in MEMS Design, Fabrication and Test.
His current research interests include collaborations to explore high frequency and sensing applications of new materials such as carbon nanotubes and other nanomaterials (graphene, 2D metal chalcogenides, phosphorenes, borophene, nanowires, 2-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) heterostructures, etc.). He is also interested in expanding research and development of MEMS devices and applications of thermal, electrostatic and piezoelectric MEMS resonators, piezoelectric energy harvesting, multi-sensor networks, and system integration.
Dr. Puchades has significant industry experience having worked as an RF device engineer and BiCMOS technology development engineer for Motorola and Freescale Semiconductor in Phoenix, Arizona from 2000 to 2005. He was responsible for CMOS and high-voltage technology integration at the 0.18-µm node. While at Freescale he organized a Device Physics Seminar for process engineers, obtained his Six-Sigma green belt accreditation and lead the resolution of several high-impact device engineering issues. He coop’d at Advanced Vision Technologies and National Semiconductor during his undergraduate studies.
