Dr. Miao Yu joined the Mechanical Engineering Department in January as a tenure-track Assistant Professor. Dr. Yu has conducted strong Ph.D. research in fiber-optic sensors, and has a vision for creating a robust research and educational program in sensor engineering at Maryland.

Over the last two years, Dr. Yu has been working as a faculty research associate in the Intelligent Optics Laboratory of the Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park. In collaboration with researchers at the Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, MD, she has recently developed novel adaptive optics algorithms based on wave front sensors. Dr. Yu received her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland in December 2002. Prior to coming to Maryland, she received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Engineering Mechanics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. Dr. Yu?s research interests include sensor systems, adaptive optics, and theoretical and experimental mechanics. She has made many invention disclosures, a U.S. patent and two pending U.S. patents in the area of fiber-optic sensor systems. The different awards that she has received include the Invention of the Year Award (2002) in the Physical Sciences Category from the University of Maryland.

Dr. Yu will serve as a member of the Program Committee of the SPIE 2005 Conference on Modeling, Signal Processing, and Control.
