Jacob Trevino, Ph.D., joined the ASRC as the director of its NanoFabrication Facility in September 2013. In that role, he works closely with CUNY faculty researchers as well as external researchers to fully develop the ASRC cleanroom’s state-of-the-art core facilities. He also leads outreach efforts to the public, academic institutions and industrial collaborators.
From 2004 to 2007, Dr. Trevino worked as a Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Engineer at Integrated Sensing Systems, Inc. in Ypsilanti, MI. There he worked with various MEMS devices, including wireless, battery-less pressure sensors for cardiac and intracranial pressure monitoring and micro-coriolis mass flow sensors for density and concentration applications. From 2007 to 2009 served as a senior process engineer at the Micromachined Products Division of Analog Devices in Cambridge, MA. Here he utilized cutting-edge micro- and nano-fabrication techniques to bring new MEMS products into high-volume manufacturing.
At Boston University, Dr. Trevino’s doctoral research involved the design of complex nanostructures for enhanced light-matter interactions in planar optical devices. Specifically, his work targeted the enhancement of light emitting diodes, thin-film solar cells, and optical beams carrying orbital angular momentum.
