Biography

Minoru Taya is currently Director, Center for Intelligent Materials and Systems, and also Nabtesco Endowed Chair Professor of Mechanical Engineering in University of Washington. Dr. Minoru Taya obtained his BS in Engineering in 1968 from University of Tokyo, and his MS in 1973 and PhD 1977 in Theoretical Applied Mechanics from Northwestern University. Dr. Taya involved in supervising a number of projects related to multifunctional materials and composites with emphasis on sensing and active materials, and compact actuators Most recently, we is working on (i) FePd nanohelix based nanorobotics under NSF-NRI program where the FePd nanohelix can shrink and expand upon switching on and off magnetic field and (ii) soft-matter based robotic hand technology using dielectric elastomer. Dr. Taya has published over 330 papers, 5 book chapters in the area of intelligent materials and systems and composites and 7 books. In addition, he published the three monograph books.
