Prof. Qiuming Yu, Ph.D. '95, promoted to Research Full Professor (U. Washington)
CBE alumna, Prof. Qiuming Yu, was recently promoted to Research Full Professor at the University of Washington in the chemical engineering department.
Prof. Yu was awarded a Ph.D. from Cornell in the Clancy group where she worked on rapid solidification in SiGe alloys, both experimentally and computationally. After a post-doc at NASA/JPL, she joined the faculty at U. Washington's chemical engineering department. She is also a former Associate Director of U. Washington's nanofabrication facility.
Her current research focuses on photonics, plasmonic biosensors, and naostructured materials. Both her children are currently Cornell undergraduates.
