Assistant Professor Hyung Bae Receives 2018 DARPA Young Faculty Award

Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Hyung Bae recently received the 2018 DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA). According to DARPA, the program is geared “to identify and engage rising research stars in junior faculty positions at U.S. academic institutions and introduce them to Department of Defense needs as well as DARPA’s program development process”.

As an awardee of the 2018 YFA program, Dr. Bae will receive $491,055 over the next three years for his research on “Polymer-based replicated multi-modal fiber Bragg grating (FBG) for Fentanyl detection”. Dr. Bae will develop a remote sensing platform which can effectively detect Fentanyl and related toxins in a challenging environment. The sensing platform can be used as a handheld device or mounted on a small drone due to its small size. The platform also can identify detected chemicals based on machine learning algorithms.

Dr. Bae holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Maryland, and both an M.S. and B.S. in mechanical engineering from Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea.
