Yiping Zhao, M.Sc.
I was born on February 1st, 1982 in Beijing, China. I obtained my Bachelor degree of Guidance and Control Engineering from Mechatronics Engineering Department of Beijing Institute of Technology in 2004, China. In September of the same year after Bachelor graduation, I started my master study on Mechatronics in the Electrical Engineering Department of University of Twente. I got to know about Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) during the master study and did my master assignment in the Transducers Science and Technology (TST, better known as “MicMec”). Since June 2006, I started working as a PhD student in a joint program from Transducers Science and Technology group and Molecular Nanofabrication group. My PhD project focused on the integration of edge lithography, nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and layer-by-layer assembly.
