João Conde, PhD

IST - Instituto Superior Técnico

João Pedro Conde received his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 1989. His thesis topic involved the study of the optoelectronic properties of amorphous silicon-silicon germanium multilayers. Between 1989 and 1990 he was an IBM post-doctoral fellow at Yorktown Heights, where he developed a low temperature process for the deposition of amorphous silicon for which a patent was awarded. Since 1990 he has been at the Instituto Superior Tecnico where he is presently a full professor in the Department of Bioengineering. He is a co-responsible for the Thin Film MEMS and BioMEMS research group of INESC Microsystems and Nanotechnologies. His current research interests include novel thin film devices such as thin film MEMS and sensors, low temperature deposition of thin film semiconductors and electronic devices and micro- and nanotechnologies applied to Lab-on-a-Chip devices.
