Dr. Jiang has 9 years of industrial experience before he joined NC State in 2009. At the graduate level, Dr. Jiang teaches micro-transducers incorporated with smart materials and micro/nanostructures (MAE 532). At the undergraduate level he teaches Solid Mechanics (MAE 314), Strength of Mechanical Components (MAE 316) Principles of Automatic Control (MAE 435), and Non-destructive Testing and Evaluation (MAE 440, with lab modules). As a faculty advisor, Dr. Jiang looks for hard-working students who have a strong background in physics and acoustics  and who are interested in developing strong instrumentation skills. His research is attractive to students who are interested in cutting-edge research in the biomedical, mechanical or aerospace areas, and who are interested in advanced imaging and therapy methods and techniques.

Research Description

Jiang is interested in micro/nano-sensors, actuators and transducers and their applications in biomedical and aerospace engineering; ultrasound imaging for medical and industrial NDE/NDT applications; high power ultrasound therapy; sensors and actuators for extreme environment; and micro/nanofabrications with smart materials and structures incorporation. Presently, he is 1) conducting research in high-frequency and broadband ultrasound transducers for biomedical imaging, therapy and NDE, 2) developing electromechanical devices for extreme environments, and 3)  studying new smart materials and micro/nanostructures for energy conversion (harvesting, sensing, actuation).
