MEAM Seminar: “Aluminum Scandium Nitride Films for Microelectromechanical Systems Resonator’s Next-Generation Cellular Technology”

Advancements in wireless and sensor technology have resulted in increasing demand for piezoelectric MEMS devices in wireless handsets and base stations, automobile technology, health monitoring sensors, and environmental sensors. Due to its high-quality factor (Q), Young’s modulus, sound velocity, and low mechanical and dielectric losses, AlN is an advantageous resonator material with applications in radio […]

MEAM Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Social Robot Augmented Telepresence for Remote Assessment and Rehabilitation of Patients with Upper Extremity Impairment”

With the shortage of rehabilitation clinicians in rural areas and elsewhere, remote rehabilitation (telerehab) fills an important gap in access to rehabilitation. We have developed a first of its kind social robot augmented telepresence (SRAT) system — Flo — which consists of a humanoid robot mounted onto a mobile telepresence base, with the goal of […]

MEAM Seminar: “Towards Personalized Predictive Human Models”

Numerical simulation of physical phenomena is a powerful tool embraced by scientists and engineers for decades. Using simulation tools to predict human movements is particularly critical for training AI-enabled robots interacting with humans, providing testbeds for wearable device design, and generating a wealth of labeled, high-fidelity human motion data. However, existing physics simulators and motor […]

MEAM Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Some Investigations of Phase Transitions in Rod-like Macro-molecules and Fibrous Gels”

Two problems pertaining to solid-solid phase transitions are presented here. First, we conduct Langevin dynamics calculations on a chain of masses and bistable springs in a viscous fluid, and extract a temperature dependent kinetic relation by observing that the dissipation at a phase boundary can be estimated by performing an energy balance. Using this kinetic […]
