Practical matters How to find us M.I. (Mónica Isela) Acuautla Meneses, PhD

Research interests

The research of Asst. Prof. Dr. Mónica Acuautla Meneses focuses in the development of engineering systems exploring the potential of piezoelectric materials. We process, tailor, and characterize piezoelectric materials (as rigid ceramics, thin films and polymers) to enhance their properties for their implementation in mechatronic, aerospace and biomedical devices. Our research follows a multidisciplinary approach integrating material science and engineering for the design and fabrication of sensors, actuators, and piezoelectric energy harvesters, micro-nanofabrication, MEMS/NEMS, flexible electronics, among others.
