Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Multi-User Micro Device Laboratory
Eui-Hyeok Yang is currently the director of the multi-user Micro Device Laboratory (MDL) and associate professor at Stevens Institute of Technology in the Mechanical Engineering department. His research in the field of nanotechnology and microelectromechanical systems has broad implications that dramatically improve electrical/optical/mechanical properties of next-generation devices and provide unrivaled functionality for use in applications, including sensors, detectors, system-on-a-chip, energy storage systems and future electronic systems. At Stevens, he has been the PI of a number of research, education and equipment grants from NSF, AFOSR, the US Army and NASA. He is currently the PI of seven active federal grants.
Yang came from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he was a senior member of the engineering staff. In recognition of his excellence in advancing the use of MEMS-based actuators for space applications, he received the prestigious Lew Allen Award for Excellence, NASA ICB Space Act Awards, Bonus (Level B and C) Awards and Class 1 NASA Tech Brief awards at JPL. In addition to holding 10 US patents (six pending), he has been actively involved in the ASME MEMS Division as a member of the executive committee. He is associate editor and member of editorial board of several journals, including IEEE Sensors Journal.
