Prof. Judy received the B.S.E.E. degree with Summa cum Laude honors from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, in 1989, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Berkeley, CA, in 1994 and 1996 respectively. His doctoral research concentrated on the merger of thin-film magnetic-recording head fabrication techniques and technologies with those used in the IC industry, to produce novel MEMS devices.
Dr. Judy worked for Silicon Light Machines, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA, a startup company commercializing a MEMS-based optical-projection system for digital-display applications, from 1996 to 1997. He joined the faculty of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1997, where he is currently an Associate Professor. He is also co-director of the NeuroEngineering Program.
Professor Judy's research interests are in micromachining and MEMS technologies, including microsensors, microactuators, microsystems, and their biomedical applications.
