Biography and Education

Byoung Hee You received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Yeungnam University, South Korea, in 1994 and 1996, respectively. He was with Research & Development Institute of Hyosung Industries and Reginoanl Research Center of Yeungam University from 1996 to 2001 as a techanical staff. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2008 with dissertation in microassembly technology for modular, polymer microfluidic devices. His research interests include design, fabrication, and characterization of nano- and microsystems. He is also interested in kinematic design of mechanical systems and design for manufacturing and mechanical assembly. He is currently an associate professor at the Department of Engineering Technology and a core faculty at the Material Science, Engineering, and Commercialization Program, Texas State University, U.S.

Research Interests
