My research interests are centered in the exciting field of smart structure technologies. The collection of response data from civil structures is important for assessing long-term structural performance and for rapid diagnosis of structural health. To collect response data and to locally process the data at the sensor, my research has focused upon the design of wireless structural monitoring systems with decentralized computing infrastructures. Embedded with sensors are computationally efficient algorithms for damage detection that can autonomously interrogate measurement data for indications of structural distress. In addition to wireless monitoring, my research team has been engaged in the design of micro electromechanical system (MEMS) sensors that are fractions of a millimeter in size and can be manufactured upon silicon wafers commonly used in the semi-conducting industry. Additional research interests include the use of active sensors, structural control, nanotechnology and large-scale systems. Currently, my research is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, University of Michigan and the NSF-sponsored Wireless Integrated Microsystem Engineering Research Center.
