Research statement
Wireless environmental sensing and communication, microfluidic analysis systems, acoustic transducers, micro seismometer, accelerometer, and mass spectrometer

Hongyu Yu joined in ASU in 2008 holding a joint position at the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. He received his BS and MS degrees in electronics engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1997 and 2000, respectively, and a PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California in 2005. His research area is focused on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for earth and space exploration. His goal is to provide miniaturized portable platforms and instruments for scientists to explore variety of earth environments and space science, such as seismology, biogeochemistry, volcanology, and astrobiology. His current projects include: miniature seismometers for earth and moon exploration, flexible and stretchable shear stress sensor for river and hot spring monitoring, wireless radiation, UV and IR sensing, 3D MEMS/NEMS manufacturing, wireless circuit component development and micro batteries.
