JSA Young Investigator LectureThe Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design provides a forum for research relating to themeasurement and analysis of strainthat is appropriate to engineering design and practice.
The JSA Young Investigator Lecture is intended to recognize a member of SEM in early to mid-career (generally 5 to 10 years after degree receipt) whose work demonstrates considerable potential in the field of Experimental Mechanics.
CRITERIA FOR SELECTION:
The award shall consist of a plaque recognizing the recipient, presented at the time the lecture is given.
JSA Young Investigator Lecturers
2013 JSA Young Investigator Lecturer: Yong Zhu
Yong Zhu received his B.S. degree in Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Science and Technology of China, China (1999), and his M.S. (2001) and Ph.D. (2005) degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University. After a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas at Austin, he joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at North Carolina State University in 2007.Professor Zhu’s research interests lie at the interface between mechanics of materials and micro/nano-technology, including size effects on mechanical properties and multiphysical coupling of nanostructures, micro/nano-electromechanical systems, flexible/stretchable devices for healthcare applications, and adhesion/friction of nanostructures. He has received several awards including Best Poster Award in the Gordon Research Conference on Thin Film & Small Scale Mechanical Behavior (2006) and Sigma Xi Faculty Research Award (2012). His work has been highlighted by National Nanotechnology Initiative, ACS Nano audio/podcast, Materials Today, Small Times, NanoWiki, NSF Science 360 and many others.
