Matilda Yun-Ju Lai, Ph.D. 2014

Mechanical Engineering
Advisor: Prof. Pisano
(510) 643-9752

BIOGRAPHY
received her B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, in 2006 and the M.S. degree from UC Berkeley in 2008, where she is a current Ph.D. student in mechanical engineering working with Prof. Albert P. Pisano. Her research interests include piezoelectric energy harvesters, RF MEMS resonators and harsh environment sensors.

HEaTS: Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters for Harsh Environments [BPN544]
This project aims to develop a micromachined piezoelectric energy harvester for pulsed pressure sources by utilizing silicon
carbide (SiC) as the structural material and aluminum nitride (AlN) as the active piezoelectric element for operation within extreme
harsh environments. The SiC/AlN energy harvesters have great potentials for integrating energy harvesting power source with SiC
sensors and circuitry and enabling self-powered wireless sensing technology for structural health monitoring of harsh environment
energy systems.
