|Dr. Yong-Jin Yoon joined Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as an Assistant Professor in January, 2010. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in the Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University in September 2009. During his PhD study, he also obtained two Master degrees in Stanford: one in Electrical Engineering, focusing on MEMS and Signal Processing, and the other in Mechanical Engineering, focusing on Medical Device Design. He was the co-founder of one internet solution company and one online game company in South Korea back in year 2000.|
During his doctoral study in Stanford, he worked in OtoBiomechanics Group in the fields of hearing mechanics. He worked closely with Stanford Medical School Otolaryngology Department for Head, Neck Surgery, focusing on inner- and middle-ear biomechanics, auditory technologies, surgical simulations, μCT and MR imaging. Currently, his researches at NTU include biomimetic electroacoustic MEMS transducer, psychoacoustic neuroscience, bio-chemical MEMS sensor, medical device, and surgical simulation.
