Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology – CNRS UMR 8520
Dr. Marco Miniaci graduated in Civil Engineering at the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2010. In 2014, he obtained his PhD in Civil Engineering defending his thesis on the “behavior and applications of elastic waves in structures and metamaterials”. During his PhD, Dr. Marco Miniaci joined the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery – Polish Academy of Science in Gdansk (PL) under the supervision of Prof. W. Ostachowicz, where he specialized in Lamb wave measurements via Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer. In 2014, he spent 1 year post-doc at the University of Torino under the supervision of Dr. F. Bosia and Prof. N. Pugno, during which he worked on “bio-inpsired phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials”. In 2016, he moved to the “Laboratory of Waves and Complex Media” (CNRS UMR 6294) of Le Havre in the framework of an Individual Marie Curie Action, under the supervision of Prof. Bruno Morvan, working on the propagation of elastic waves in active phononic crystals. In January 2018 he joined the research group of the Prof. M. Ruzzene at the “Laboratory of Wave Motion” at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA – United States), working as a post-doc fellow on phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials for topological insulation. In the period July 2018 – December 2019, he was appointed at the Empa “Laboratory of Acoustics and Noise Control” of Dubendorf in the framework of a COFUND Marie Curie Action, under the supervision of Dr. Andrea Bergamini, working on the control of elastic waves via hierarchical metamaterials.
Starting from 1st January 2020, he is a CNRS researcher at the IEMN of Lille within the group of Acoustics and Work Package leader of the FET-Open “BOHEME”. Dr. Marco Miniaci is co-inventor of the Patent n. 102018000007142 about “Multi-directional and multi-frequency wave attenuator between two fluids of different density”.
