About the Presenter
Dr. Yu Ding is the Mike and Sugar Barnes Professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering, Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Co-Director of TEES Institute of Manufacturing Systems, all at Texas A&M University. Dr. Ding received a B.S. degree from the University of Science & Technology of China in 1993, an M.S. degree from Tsinghua University in 1996, an M.S. degree from Penn State University in 1998, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan in 2001. His research interests are in the area of system informatics and data and quality science. Dr. Ding is a Fellow of IISE, a Fellow of ASME, a senior member of IEEE, and a member of INFORMS.
Thanks to the collaboration opportunities offered by colleagues in material sciences and manufacturing, our research team has the access to a variety of electron microscopic images of nano materials. Our research focus is to develop automated, reliable, and uncertainty-quantifiable processing capability that converts the characterization image data of nano materials into machine intelligible information (morphology, dispersion, etc). Our current work handles both still images as well as dynamic video data. Concerning the still images, our methods address the issues of morphology analysis of overlapping nanoparticles and statistical quantification of particle dispersion uniformity. Concerning the streaming images, our methods address the needs of retrospective analysis and prospective analysis. The retrospective analysis centers on off-line video data, to signal possible phase change points, thus delineating the stages of growth. The prospective analysis is to develop an online, forward-looking model that can track the nanoparticle growth trajectory, which can potentially help identify the necessary adjustments and control actions for producing the nanoparticles of desired sizes and shapes.

Open Access Manufacturing Research Seminars Bring Speakers from Around the World to the ISD Community and Our Friends
Spotlighting the latest manufacturing research is the focus of the Manufacturing Engineering Research Seminar series. U-M professors, their accomplished counterparts from around the world, and industry leaders present the latest findings on a broad range of manufacturing-related topics on campus and through online learning.
Everyone is welcome to attend the presentations on the Ann Arbor campus. In order to make this knowledge available to all through our focus on online learning, the seminars are digitally recorded so they can be viewed any time, any place. Each seminar is about one hour in length.
Recorded seminars will be posted after they have been presented. Check our archive above for the topics that interest you.
Email announcements will be sent out preceding each seminar. If you would like to be added to the invitation list, contact Rachael Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
