Poenar Daniel Puiu received the M.Sc. degree in electronics and telecommunications in 1989 from Polytechnic University, Bucharest, Romania. He received the Ph.D. degree from the Technical University Delft in 1996. He then joined the Institute of Microelectronics (IME) Singapore, as a Research Engineer until 1999. Since 2000 he has been an Assistant Professor with the Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) School, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. His research interest are MEMS and micromachining and their application for the development of sensors and actuators, especially for (bio)chemical devices. Dr. Poenar is co-author of more than 70 papers published in journals and conferences proceedings.
