Phone : 425-352-5131
Project/Faculty Website : https://www.uwb.edu/engineering-math/faculty/mechanical-engineering/jyoon
Research Location : UW Bothell
Project Goals : My research interests focus on the design and development of mechatronics systems and their application in medical devices. Within this area, I am specifically interested in 1) Multi-modal medical diagnostic devices, 2) Minimally Invasive Surgical Robotics and Smart User Interface, and 3) Assistive Technologies. Above three components could be tied together synergistically. See example on-going/future projects below.
Student Qualifications : Open to freshman through senior; must be an Innovative thinker and designer.
Student Outcomes : Based upon the fundamentals of analogue and digital electro-mechanical components, students will build a simple but interesting mechatronics systems acquiring basics of programming language for embedded systems. Students will be able to learn how to professionally present their work and write a report.
Student Responsibilities : Study literature reviews, understand the concept of mechatronics and learn basics of various sensors and actuators, design/fabrication of a novel medical system using different actuators, control interfaces, and 3D printing from scratch, and submit summary reports at the end of each term.
Time Frame : Initial time frame for each project is one year. However, upon successful completion of the proposed milestones, it will be further extended to following year(s) with updated topics. Willing to spend 10 hours/week for 3 consecutive quarters. Students will attend weekly research group meetings and present weekly progress.
