Midori Sanchez-Sifuentes


I hold a Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics Engineering and a Master's in Materials Science and Engineering from Pontifical University Catholic of Peru (PUCP). My academic journey is characterized by a focus on engineering applied to medical devices. During my undergraduate studies, I was involved in various projects about Social Robotics developing expertise in CAD design, finite element simulation, digital fabrication, and mechanism problem-solving. My interest in digital manufacturing led me to the University's Digital Manufacturing Laboratory (VEO 3D-PUCP). At work, I gained proficiency in 3D printing, laser cutting, and design parameters. Then expanded my knowledge, obtaining certifications in Additive Manufacturing by Stratasys and Reverse Engineering by Creaform. I contributed to projects involving medical devices and product design. This resulted in 10 publications, 2 utility models, and 5 industrial design patents. I pursued a Master's degree, focusing on developing flexible sensors for diabetes diagnosis. My thesis involved advanced techniques such as Polyjet and Sputtering technologies and optoelectronic characterizations.

I am currently engaged in PhD studies, with a primary focus on advancing the development of state-of-the-art tools for minimally invasive surgical robots. In pursuit of this goal, I am harnessing a range of innovative manufacturing technologies, placing a distinct emphasis on Aerosol Jet Printing. In this endeavor, I am working with biocompatible polymer materials with magnetic nanoparticles. The ultimate objective is to create tools applying smart materials and explore the realm of 4D printing.
