Profile Summary

Dr. Patricia Nieva received her Bachelor Degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in the Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria, Lima, Peru. She received her M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University, Massachusetts, USA. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering and the Director of the Sensors and Integrated Microsystems Laboratory at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Her main research goal is the use of micro and nanotechnology to design microsensors, nanosensors and integrated systems solutions, particularly for harsh environment sensing, point-of-care health monitoring and medical diagnosis. Her work also spans reliability studies and in-situ characterization of material properties of thin films used in the manufacturing of N/MEMS. Dr Nieva’s ongoing research work constitutes an important commitment to the identification of simple, cost-effective and reliable technologies for advanced sensing.
