Jing Receives 2018 IEEE Ultrasonics Early Career Investigator Award

golftournDr. Yun Jing received the Ultrasonics Early Career Investigator Award at the 2018 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium on Wednesday, October 24th in Kobe, Japan.

Awarded for his contributions to numerical modeling wave propagation, Jing has been at the frontier of developing fast and accurate algorithms for modeling acoustic wave propagation in complex biological tissues. These algorithms can facilitate high intensity focused ultrasound treatment planning, transducer characterization, and the design of transducers.

A professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Jing and his team also work on contributing to the development of ultrasound drug delivery and high intensity focused ultrasound, studying the acoustic meta-materials for sub-wavelength imaging, noise reduction and cloaking, and designing noise insulation materials.
