Yoeri van de Burgt studied Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology where he received his Master’s degree (cum laude) in 2010 in the Micro- and Nano-scale Engineering group of prof. Andreas Dietzel on a project that was carried out in collaboration with TNO.

In 2010 he started a PhD in the same group, which, in 2013, became the Microsystems group, headed by prof. Jaap den Toonder, on the optimization and control of laser-assisted carbon nanotube growth. The most important results are presented in his Ph.D. dissertation (link). After completion of his doctoral thesis he worked as a research consultant for Holst Centre on an industrial project to implement his research setup in a manufacturing process for flexible and roll-to-roll applications.

Hereafter he moved to Switzerland to work at a high-tech ambitious start-up company, FEMTOprint, using femtosecond-laser technology combined with chemical etching to fabricate complex 3D micro-devices in glass and polymers for microfluidics, optics and optomechanical applications.

In March 2015, he started as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Materials Science department of Stanford University in California, USA in the group of prof. Alberto Salleo. Here, he worked on organic electronics and developed an artificial synapse for neuromorphic computing. Furthermore, he studied laser/material interactions for the enhancement and investigation of electrogenic cell-material interaction on structured surfaces and was involved in laser-liftoff for single-crystal III-V semiconductor thin films.

In November 2016 he returned to Eindhoven to start as an assistant professor in the Microsystems group.
