Filipe Alves

Research Fellow
Nanodevices

Filipe Alves is currently a research fellow in the Nanoelectronics Engineering Department (Nanodevices research group) at INL. His research is focused on the development of integrated inter-ocular eye pressure monitoring systems, based on MEMS pressure sensors. His research interests range from the design and modelling of MEMS sensors to the design of mixed-signal integrated circuits.

He obtained his PhD in the microelectronics research area, focusing on pull-in based MEMS inclinometers with integrated electronics at the University of Minho. Filipe has been a scientific visitor at the Delft University of Technology and at INL. Before joining INL he was an assistant professor at the Industrial Electronics Department of the University of Minho.
