Chunyang Zhai, a graduate student in the Electrical Engineering program, was awarded a Rackham International Student Fellowship for 2011-12. Ms. Zhai is working with Prof. Michael Flynn in the area of analog and mixed-signal circuits, and applying her work to infrastructure health monitoring.
"Currently I am designing a magnetic field sensor to detect bridge cracks, corrosion and other signs of weakness which are very tiny and can’t seen by the human eye," stated Ms. Zhai. "This sensing circuit will provide an accurate report regarding the crack at any time, ensuring the safety of the bridge."
