Biography

Yuen Yong- Award night

Yuen Kuan Yong received the B.Eng. degree (1st Class Hons.) in mechatronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from The University of Adelaide, Australia, in 2001 and 2007, respectively. She is currently an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, The University of Newcastle, Australia. Her research interests include the design and control of nanopositioning systems, high-speed atomic force microscopy, actuation and sensing of microcantilever, finite-element analysis of smart materials and structures, MEMS and miniature robots.

Dr. Yong is a recipient of the 2008 and 2016 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM) Best Conference Paper Finalist Award, The University of Newcastle Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Research Excellence and the Pro Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Research Performance. She is an Associate Editor for the IEEE/ASME Transactions of Mechatronics, and the Frontiers in Mechanical Engineering (specialty section Mechatronics). She is also a steering committee member for the International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales (MARSS).
