AIvan.jpg Dear visitor, Welcome to my professional web page!

 

My background is based on an engineer’s diploma in applied physics and a Ph.D. thesis in microelectronics.

 

My current position is of an associate professor at Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Saint-Etienne, which is a part of l’Université de Lyon, one of the most important French Universities.

In parallel I still keep an associate professor statute at the Electrical Engineering Faculty of Valahia University of Târgovişte, Romania, where I carry out some research projects. 

 

I am an alumnus of the European Community Marie Curie Fellowships Programme, research carried out in microrobotics and microtechnology at the FEMTO-ST Institute.

 

Research activities carried out during my career are mainly related to:

 

globul1a  Piezoelectric actuators and senors for microrobotics / micromechatronics;

globul1a  Bulk acoustic waves piezoelectric resonators;

globul1a  Photovoltaic systems.
