BIOGRAPHY
is currently pursuing his PhD in Professor Clark T.-C. Nguyen’s research group in the Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences department at UC Berkeley. Having completed his B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh in 2014, his current research interests include the design and fabrication of novel resonant MEMS devices for applications in UHF filters, oscillators and RF transcievers. Primarily, he is looking for new ways to integrate CMOS and MEMS process technologies in order to realize fully monolithic integrated CMOS-MEMS transceivers.

Fully Integrated CMOS-Metal MEMS Systems [BPN867]
As RF MEMS technology evolves to shift towards UHF frequencies, the parasitics inherent in hybrid
fabrication approaches become the performance bottleneck. This project aims to integrate metal MEMS
resonators directly over CMOS circuitry to achieve fully integrated MEMS systems. Pursuant to this
goal, this project proposes several designs for UHF MEMS bandpass filters, exploring how different
CMOS-compatible metals can yield performance metrics—such as quality-factor (Q), temperature
stability and frequency drift—that are comparable to those of standard polysilicon MEMS resonators.
