Research Fellow
I`m a Research Fellow at Harvard in Materials Science. My research explores elastomers and novel nanocomposites for voltage controlled dielectric elastomer actuators. This technology is proposed for applications among them tunable polymer optics, soft robotics and sensors for health diagnosis. Another basic aspect of my research is the complex dynamics of mechanic instabilities and dielectric breakdown found for this soft, stretchable class of polymers. I hold a degree in Physics from the University of Potsdam, Germany.
