Ph.D., B.S. (Mechanical Engineering), Tufts University, 2008,
James Vlahakis earned his Ph.D. and B.S. in mechanical engineering from Tufts University and his M.S. in mechanical engineering from Harvard. He returned to Tufts from his role as a process development engineer at Intel Corp. He has experience in academic, industrial and government environments, in a number of areas – micro and nano fabrication, ion beam operations and applications and medical device testing and regulation. The Tufts Micro/Nano Fabrication Lab is a multi-user, multi-PI, multi department core facility that enables micro/nano scale research for all Tufts campuses and Dr. Vlahakis is responsible for all operational aspects of the facility. In addition, he regularly contributes to micro/nano research programs that cross numerous fields – flexible devices, MEMS sensors, bio-optics, etc.
Dr. Vlahakis' research interests include:
2013-present Lab Manager/Researcher, Tufts Micro/Nano
Honors, Awards & Invited Talks
2008 Invited Lecturer, Advances in CMP, MIT Lincoln Labs
