Dr. Mei-Lin Chan obtained her B.Eng and M.Eng both in Mechanical Engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2000 and 2002 respectively, focusing in the characterization and testing of MEMS physical sensors (microaccelerometers and microgyroscopes). From 2002-2004, she held a research engineer appointment in the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, (IMRE) Singapore, where she was involved in the research and development of quartz biosensors and fluidic microlens. In 2010, she received her Ph.D. from the Dept. of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at the University of California, Davis, where she developed a scanometric platform that combines highly sensitive magnetic sensors with DNA microarray technology for environmental monitoring applications. Since March 2010, she has been involved in postdoctoral research work in MEMSLab at UCDavis, focusing on developing an electrostatically driven microrotary platform based on liquid bearing support. Her interests include the design, modeling, fabrication and experimental characterization of MEMS/NEMS devices.
