Process Integration R&D Team Leader, imec

Alexandru Andrei received the Ph.D. degree on semiconductor microsystems from INSA Lyon, Lyon, France, in 2005. After working for two years on piezoelectric MEMS with FEMTO-ST (Besancon, France), he joined imec (Leuven, Belgium) in 2008. His research activity focuses on translating new device concepts into Si prototypes by creating an executable and manufacturable process flow based on a combination of innovative steps as well as existing process technologies. After being the silicon processing lead for the Neuropixels 1.0 development, he manages a small team of integration engineers since 2019 that brought Neuropixels 1.0 to production while also exploring next generation implantable silicon devices.
