Dr. Benjamin Griffin Program Manager Microsystems Technology Office

Dr. Benjamin Griffin joined DARPA in October 2018 as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO). His research interests include MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS), unattended sensors, sensors and electronics for aerospace applications, materials and devices hardened to operate in harsh environments, and RF resonators and filters.

Prior to joining DARPA, Dr. Griffin was a principal member of technical staff in the MEMS technologies department at Sandia National Laboratories. At Sandia, he led research programs in the area of MEMS sensors, actuators, and resonators with a focus on aluminum nitride (AlN)-based piezoelectric devices and next-generation piezoelectric materials, such as scandium aluminum nitride (ScAlN). Preceding his position at Sandia, Dr. Griffin spent more than two years with the Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation, developing sensing technologies for aerospace applications.

Dr. Griffin received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in aerospace engineering, and his Doctorate of Philosophy degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida (UF). His graduate research was in the area of AlN piezoelectric micromachined ultrasonic transducers (PMUTs) for nonlinear acoustic applications. He was also a National Science Foundation graduate research fellow at UF.
