Technical Staff Member, Los Alamos National Laboratory Engineering Sciences and Applications Division Office, Engineering Institute (ESA-DO)
Research focus on the applications of impedance-based methods and wave propagations for structural health monitoring (SHM), active sensor self-diagnostics, and self-repairing structural systems with an emphasis on the use of active materials . He is also interested in energy harvesting, the process of extracting energy from the environment or from a surrounding system and converting it to useable electrical energy. Part of his research is concerned with the integration of sensing hardware and data-interrogation software to provide more effective SHM solutions. The goal of his research is to allow systems and structures to monitor their own integrity during operation and throughout their lives in order to prevent catastrophic failures and to reduce costs by minimizing preemptory maintenance and inspection tasks.
Gyuhae received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech in 2000. He is currently a technical staff member at Los Alamos National Laboratory. His prior appointments include Research Scientist (2000–2) at Virginia Tech and a Project Engineer (1992–3) at Pohang Iron & Steel manufacturing Co., Ltd., Korea . He has published more than 40 referred journal articles, 4 book chapters, and more than 100 conference proceedings. He is currently serving as an associate editor for the journal of intelligent material systems and structures.
