João Mouro received his PhD in Technological Physics from Instituto Superior Técnico, affiliated with INESC-MN Research Centre, Lisbon, Portugal, in 2015. His thesis involved the study of the dynamics of thin-film MEMS flexural resonators made of hydrogenated amorphous silicon. Between 2016 and 2020 he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Universities of Liverpool and Bristol, UK, and in INESC-MN Research Centre, Lisbon, Portugal, working on projects involving MEMS resonators for rheology sensing, MEMS relays for digital computing, and spintronics. He is currently working at Institute for Complex Systems, Florence, Italy, under a Marie Skłodowska-Curie EU grant, developing a mass and rheology sensing system based on the dynamical response of a self-excited microcantilever.
