Educational background and field(s) of interest
Sina Sadeghpour received a MSc. degree in Electronics and Integrated Circuit from Univerity of Leuven (KU Leuven) in 2015. Since October 2015 he has been working as a research assistant at the KU Leuven-MICAS group, towards obtaining the Ph.D degree in the field of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). He is Focusing on piezoelectric materials and ultrasound transducer, for underwater sensor network applications. Growing AlN and PZT piezoelectric thin films by PVD, ALD, and sol-gel process, respectively are his expertise. He also designs and fabricates highly efficient, low power, and flexible Micromachine Piezoelectric Ultrasound Transducers (PMUT) and Macro size ultrasound transducers mainly in the cleanroom of KU Leuven, as well as cleanrooms of Imec, and Université catholique de Louvain. The aforementioned devices will be used in the Phoenix project.
How did you get involved in The Phoenix Project?
Through Prof. Puers.
What is your motivation to contribute to The Phoenix Project?
Phoenix is a multidisciplinary project, in which a true meaning of team-work can be sensed.It offered a challenging project with a significant impact on industry. Working in Phoenix allowed me to experience both academic and industrial environments. This gave me a good insight of what I would like to do for my future. I recommend every to not loose the chance of working in a European funded project, specially the ones with high level of risk.
