Dr. E. H. Yang is a Professor of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stevens Institute of Technology. He was Senior Member of the Engineering Staff at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). In recognition of his excellence in advancing the use of MEMS-based actuators for NASA's space applications, he received the prestigious Lew Allen Award for Excellence at JPL in 2003. He joined Stevens Institute of Technology in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in 2006. Currently, his group's research covers the growth and nanofabrication of graphene, carbon nanotubes and 2D materials, as well as the implementation of tunable wetting and surface interaction. Dr. Yang’s service to the professional community includes formal appointments such as Editorial Board Member of Nature’s Scientific Reports and Elsevier NANOSO, and Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors and ASME JEECS. Dr. Yang has published hundreds of papers and provided keynotes, presentations, and seminars at various academic and industrial events. He is a Fellow of National Academy of Inventors. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
