Paulo Yu Earns ASME Graduate Teaching Fellowship

Paulo Yu, a second-year doctoral student studying mechanical engineering, has been awarded an American Society of Mechanical Engineers Graduate Teaching Fellowship . As one of the requirements of the fellowship, Yu, is teaching Experimental Methods for Engineers (ME 330). This course addresses probability and statistics, uncertainty analysis, different measurement systems, and introduction to data acquisition and data analysis.

“Paulo is one of the outstanding Ph.D. researchers in the department in experimental biofluids and advanced data analysis,” said Yu’s faculty advisor, Vibhav Durgesh. “Paulo plans to pursue a career in academia, and the ASME fellowship will help him achieve his long-term career goals.”

As part of the requirements of the fellowship, Yu is teaching Experimental Methods for Engineers (ME 330) with a lab portion. The junior-level mechanical engineering course covers a wide range of topics, including probability and statistics, uncertainty analysis, introduction to different measurement systems, introduction to data acquisitions and data analysis.

Yu’s doctoral program focuses on experimental fluid dynamics.
His research focuses on flow behavior of biofluids inside an aneurysm. He expects that the results of his work “will be beneficial in designing and optimizing treatment methods and efficient clinical procedures when treating aneurysms.”
