Principle Investigator

Arash Kheyraddini Mousavi

I am an Assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at New Mexico Tech. I received my PhD, MSc and BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of New Mexico, Amirkabir University of Technology and Tabriz University respectively. My main area of interest are MicroElectroMechanical Systems (also known as MEMS), Bio-MEMS and their applications.

Graduate Students

Phillip Clift

Phillip is a graduate student having completed his B.S. in Materials Engineering and an M.S. in Nanotechnology. Participated in the UAMEMS 2016 competition and won first place in the commercialization category for a novel bio-monitoring MEMS device. Currently participating the Space-Race competition for IP transfer rights and funding. Currently, has a novel invention submitted through the NMIMT university patent foundation for radiation shielding for spacecraft solar arrays.

Undergraduate Students

Joseph Martinez-Ponce

I am an undergraduate student at The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. My major is Mechanical Engineering and I plan on specializing in Nanotechnology and MEMS. My future goal is to work in the MEMS field, hopefully at Sandia National Labratories, and to get at least a masters degree in MEMS. I am currently (2017) working with Dr. Mousavi on Interferometry and Interferometric Lithography.

Caylin McKeen

I am currently an undergraduate student at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology pursuing a bachelors of science in Mechanical Engineering. After completing my BS I plan to pursue my masters of science in Micro Electric Mechanical Systems.

Jacob Pelster

I’m a transfer student from Colorado with an associates of science in mathematics with lots of extra credits. This is my first year at Tech. I’m studying for a bachelors in mechanical engineering and hope to gain a masters in nanotechnology. In addition, I work as a tutor in the OSL. I am excited to complete research with Dr. Mousavi in the Nano and Micro systems laboratory.
