WNCG faculty member Nanshu Lu is now a full professor in the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics.
Lu has been with The University of Texas since 2011; she also holds appointments in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. She joined WNCG in 2018 and soon after served as a faculty co-organizer of the 2019 Texas Wireless Summit, "Connectivity and Sensing at the Human-Machine Frontier."
Her research interests include mechanics of micro-bubbles and tents; nano & 2D materials; manufacture and transfer of soft electronics; bio-electronics interface; and soft bioelectronics systems. Representative work of her group includes mechanics of 2D material bubbles and large-deformation micro-blisters, graphene e-tattoos (GETs), “cut-solder-paste” manufacture of active e-tattoos, Cartan transfer of large-area electronic tattoos (e-tattoos), mechanics of crater-enabled physical adhesives, as well as modular and multimodal e-tattoos.
