Assistant Professor Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering
Dr. U Kei Cheang received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University in 2015 where he was supported by the NSF GRFP, the NSF IGERT Fellowship, and the NSF EAPSI Fellowship. Dr. Cheang’s research in Micro- and Nanorobotics entails the development of mobile micro and nanoscale swimming robots. His research encompasses controls, micro/nanofabrication, and micro/nanofluidics. Dr. Cheang's notable research include the modular microrobot, the particle-based microrobot, and the artificial bacteria. His work on robotic microswimmers was awarded the top 10 Netexplo Award in 2016.
