Biography of Dr. Yuu Ono


Yuu Ono received his B. Eng. degree in Electrical Engineering from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan in 1990, and M. Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Communication Engineering in 1992 and 1995, respectively, from the same university. Right after completing his Ph.D. study, he became a Research Associate at the Graduate School of Engineering, Tohoku University, where he worked on the development of ultrasonic material characterization system and its application for electronic, semiconductor and optical materials and devices. In 2001, he was awarded Canadian Government Laboratory Visiting Fellowship (selected by NSERC) and joined the Industrial Materials Institute (IMI), National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, Boucherville, QC. In 2002, he became a Research Officer at the IMI, NRC. He was also appointed as an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Concordia University, Montreal, QC in 2003-2006. Since July 2006, he has been an Associate Professor at the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, ON. His research interests include: development of sensors and their applications for biomedical monitoring and diagnosis; biomedical tissue characterization; ultrasonic imaging; sensors and techniques for real-time monitoring, control and optimization of material processes; materials characterization; and non-destructive evaluation of products and structures. He has published papers concerning piezoelectric ceramic films for smart sensors, polymer process diagnosis for micro device fabrication, molten metal process diagnosis, ultrasonic imaging and measurements, acoustic microscopy, and materials characterization for optical, SAW and semiconductor devices using line-focus-beam ultrasonic material characterization (LFB-UMC) system. He is a senior member of IEEE (EMBS) and a member of the association of Professional Engineers of Ontario.
