Biography

As Assistant Professor at TU Delft's ECTM group, Massimo "Max" Mastrangeli is investigating new solutions for the development of Si/polymer-based organ-on-chip platforms, and alternative processes for the fabrication of nanoparticle-based devices and systems.

Massimo received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees cum laude in Electronic Engineering from Universitá di Pisa, (Pisa, Italy) in 2003 and 2005, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Materials Engineering from University of Leuven (Leuven, Belgium) in 2010. His doctoral dissertation pioneered microsystem integration by fluidic self-assembly.

From 2011 to 2013 he was Post-Doctoral Scientist with the Distributed Intelligent Systems and Algorithms Laboratory (DISAL) and the Microsystems Laboratory (LMIS1) of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland), researching on the convergence of M/NEMS and distributed robotics.

In 2014, he joined the Department of Bio, Electro And Mechanical Systems (BEAMS) of Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) as Senior Scientist, investigating surface tension-based micromanipulation and templated nanoparticle assembly.

As Research Associate at the Physical Intelligence Department of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Associated Member of the Max Planck ETH Center for Learning Systems (Stuttgart, Germany) between 2015 and 2017, he focused his research on micro-robotics, bio-inspired adhesion, and programmable self-organization.

Massimo is currently also Lecturer at the EDMI Doctoral School of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
