Research interests:

My research focuses on nanotechnologies, including micro/nano-electro-mechanical sensors and actuators, nano-scale energy conversion devices, biomedical devices, novel nano materials, etc. I am looking for highly motivated Ph.D. graduate students who are majoring in applied physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry, materials science engineering, biomedical engineering, or other closely related areas to join my research team. We always look for dedicated undergraduate or master students to join us, to do creative work in rapidly growing field and generate co-authored publications.

Yuerui Lu received his Ph.D. degree from Cornell University, the school of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 2012. He holds a B.S. degree from department of Applied Physics at University of Science and Technology of China. In 2013, he joined the Australian National University as research fellow and lecturer under the Future Engineering Research Leadership Fellowship. In October 2015, he was promoted to Senior Lecturer at the ANU. Before that, he worked as a postdoc research associate in SonicMEMS Laboratory at Cornell University. His research interests include MEMS/NEMS sensors and actuators, nano-manufacturing technologies, renewable energy harvesting, biomedical novel devices, nano-materials, nano-electronics, etc. He was the recipient of many awards, including the competitive Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) from Australian Research Council (ARC) in 2014, Future Engineering Research Leadership Fellow from Australian National University in 2013, MRS Graduate Student Award (Silver) in 2012 from Materials Research Society, Best Poster Award in 2012 from Cornell NanoScale Facility Annual Meeting, Daisy Yen Wu Scholarship in 2012 from Cornell University, Chinese Government Award for outstanding Ph.D. students in 2010, Guo Moruo Presidential Award in 2003 from University of Science and Technology of China, etc. He is serving as a reviewer for several journals, including Advanced Materials, Applied Physics Letters, Nanotechnology, Optics Express, Sensors and Actuators A: Physical, Small, etc.
