Pieter Gijsenbergh
Field Of Expertise: MEMS characterization

Pieter Gijsenbergh received his master’s degree in electrical engineering from KU Leuven in 2010, with a thesis investigating the physical properties of polymers for MEMS fabrication. In 2016, he obtained a PhD degree in electrical engineering, also from KU Leuven, with a dissertation on the development and fabrication of various capacitive sensors for microfluidic systems. After a one-year post-doctoral project, he left academia in 2017 and joined TMC Science & Technology as a consultant. In that capacity, he rapidly filled a vacancy within the Multiphysics Microsystems team of the Sensor and Actuator Technologies department at imec. As a research engineer, he was mainly responsible for the electrical, mechanical, and acoustical characterization of ultrasound transducers. He was also in charge of demonstrator development for mid-air ultrasound applications, such as haptic feedback and gesture recognition. Furthermore, he was involved in piezoelectric and piezoresistive materials investigations. Late 2022, he joined imec full time as an R&D Team Leader, overseeing the multiphysics MEMS characterization efforts. He has (co-)authored nine articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented his work at more than a dozen international conferences.
