About José Oscar Mur-Miranda

Dr. Mur-Miranda received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT in 2004, with a dissertation on electrostatic vibration-to-electric energy conversion under Professor Jeffrey H. Lang. His electrostatic vibration energy harvester is the first published design of its kind in the literature.
He earned Bachelor’s and Master’s, Engineering degrees from MIT, both in electrical engineering.
At Olin, Dr. Mur-Miranda has taught several electrical engineering classes such as Signals and Systems, Microelectromechanical Systems and Nonlinear Circuit Analysis. He has also taught Design Nature and User-Oriented Collaborative Design, part of the design stream at Olin.
Before coming to Olin, he was an associate professor of Electrical Engineering at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico, Bayamón Campus. Prior to that, Dr. Mur-Miranda was a research consultant in energy harvesting systems at the Centre Nacional de Microelectrònica in Barcelona, Spain.
He has designed and implemented industrial process control and automation systems for various pharmaceutical companies.
