Research profile

Yoeri van de Burgt is an Assistant Professor in the Microsystems group at TU/e as well as a member of the Institute of Complex Molecular Studies (ICMS). His expertise spans material science, materials characterisation, finite element modelling, nanotechnology, organic electronics, cell/material interfaces, laser applications and neuromorphic engineering. Tuition includes mechanical engineering, microsystems and design-based learning. Currently, he is studying the optimisation of materials for organic neuromorphics as well as developing neuromorphic arrays for brain-inspired medical diagnostic lab-on-a-chips.

Academic background

Yoeri obtained his BSc and MSc in Mechanical Engineering at TU/e, and then continued with his PhD at the same department on the topic ‘Laser-assisted growth of carbon nanotubes’. He successfully defended his thesis in 2014. He also 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.

After subsequently working as an R&D Engineer at the company FEMTOprint, Switzerland, he obtained a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University (USA), where he worked on organic neuromorphics and electrochemical transistors. 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. He has also been visiting professor at the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering.
