The Principle Investigator, Dr. Yiming "Jerry" Deng, is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and he is leading an integrative effort in both research and education to apply advances in engineering, physics, and mathematics to the development of advanced nondestructive/noninvasive or minimally invasive imaging techniques. His current research interests are imaging/sensing for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM), Intelligent Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) of complex systems, Numerical Modeling and Simulation, that basically cover three methods: analytical, experimental (e.g. nondestructive evaluation techniques, sensors development) and computational (e.g. finite element methods, meshless methods, and multi-physics solvers). Dr. Deng is the director or the LEAP Group and also an adjunct professor of Bioengineering and Scientific Staff at Colorado Translational Research Imaging Center. He is currently a visiting assistant professor of Pharmacology at CU School of Medicine. As PI or co-PI, Dr. Deng has attracted over $1.6M research grant and involved in cutting-edge research projects with the amount of $3.5M.
