Microscale Sensors and Systems
Areas of interest:
Micro- and Nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) sensors and
actuators, microfabrication processes and materials, and computational
modeling of micro-electromechanical systems. These interests are
directed towards device development and engineering science in micro-
and nano-technology, with an emphasis on acoustic sensing, wind tunnel
instrumentation, dynamic systems, and robotic systems.
