Biography

Matteo Rinaldi received his first-level (B.S.) and second-level (M.Sc.) Laurea degrees in Electronic Engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy, in 2004 and 2007, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, in 2010. His research interests primarily include Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS) devices with particular emphasis on Aluminum Nitride (AlN) piezoelectric NEMS sensors for physical, chemical and biological detection, AlN Radio Frequency MEMS/NEMS devices, micro/nano fabrication techniques and integration of MEMS/NEMS devices with electronics. He has authored more than 20 publications in the aforementioned research areas and also holds 3 device patent applications in the field of micro/nano mechanical resonant devices.

Matteo Rinaldi was the recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the 2009 and 2011 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposiums. In March 2011 he was awarded with the S. J. Stein Prize for his superior achievements in the field of new or unique materials or applications for materials in electronics.

Matteo Rinaldi joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Northeastern University as an Assistant Professor in the Spring 2012 semester.
