Vlad Badilita has received his BSc (1997) and MSc (1999) degrees in Solid State Physics from the University of Bucharest, Romania. In 2004 he obtained the PhD degree in the field of Semiconductor Photonics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) with the thesis “Study of Vertical Coupled-Cavity Laser Structures” under the guidance of Prof. Marc Ilegems.
In 2005, Dr. Badilita joined the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Lab (MSAL) at the Univ. of Maryland at College Park as a postdoctoral research associate until 2007. Between 2007 and 2015, Dr. Badilita was with the Laboratory for Microactuators at IMTEK, Univ. of Freiburg as a Group Leader for Magnetic Microsystems.
In 2015, he moved to KIT at the Institute of Microstructure Technology as the group leader of the Spin & Photon Applications (SPA-) Laboratory. His research interests cover the broad area of MEMS with a focus on miniaturized detectors for magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging applications, as well as electromagnetic microactuators. In the framework of the TisuMR project, Dr. Badilita will be involved in the micro-MR detector design and subsequent integration with microfluidics for liver samples handling.
