Dave Bothman does a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff and management.
Brian Gibson employs UHF laser Doppler vibrometry to study energy loss mechanisms in MEMS resonators as part of the DEFYS program.
Kamala Qalandar is basically the goddess of COMSOL. She’s working on the DEFYS project and the frequency divider project, she is on her way to publish very exciting results.
Lily Li‘s work ranges from MEMS fabrication to device characterization, her work focuses on enhancing microcantilever mass sensing sensitivity by combining nonlinear parametric resonance and control theory.
Jamie Booth is the group’s resident Scotsman and the newest member of the gecko team.
Luke Patterson is a pretty cool cat, always thinking outside the box. He is currently exploring the intersection between MEMS devices and biomedical engineering in hopes of one day saving the world, one tiny little machine at a time.
Celso Accoto is a visiting PhD student in Prof. Kimberly Turner’s group at UCSB. He has a M.S. in Micro and Nanotechnologies and a B.S. in Electronics Engineering. Current research fields are the design, fabrication and characterization of micro resonators for mass sensing in microfluidics systems: upon joining the Turner MEMS Group he is investigating the use of parametric resonance to improve the device’s performances.
