Yun Jing Research Group


I received the Bachelor of Science degree in Acoustics from the Department of Electronic Engineering in Nanjing University (China) in 2006. I completed my Ph.D. in Architectural Acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute under the supervision of Dr. Ning Xiang in 08/2009. From 09/2009-08/2011, I was a research fellow in the Focused Ultrasound Lab, Harvard Medical School (Brigham and Women’s Hospital), working on nonlinear acoustics and transcranial beam focusing. I have been an assistant professor at Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NC State University, since Fall 2011. I was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2017.

Starting September 2013, I am also an adjunct professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, which is a joint program between NCSU and UNC Chapel Hill. I have done consulting work for several companies on acoustic modeling and noise control.

My primary research interests are:

  • Biomedical Ultrasound: ultrasound imaging and therapy
  • Acoustic Metamaterials
  • Noise Control
  • Nonlinear Acoustics
  • Computational Acoustics
  • Architectural Acoustics
