"Engineers make the world a better place by translating the laws of science to overcome the limitations that nature has imposed on humanity. Engineering has truly enabled us to have dominion over much of the world around us." Read more>>> about Dr. Hunsu and his work in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Engineering Education Transformations Institute.

"My research interests are to solve engineering problems using laser, fiber optics, and soft robotics. Laser and fiber optics really interests me since I was a college student because of their unique properties that you cannot find in electronics. Those properties give us unlimited possibilities to explore. Soft robotics is my new research interest, and I jumped into this area because of the infinite degree of freedom and the human-friendly physical interface that soft robots provide."- Professor Mable Fok, Director Lightwave & Microwave Photonics Laboratory Read More >>>

"The fascination of biomedical imaging with its many aspects never left me. Biomedical imaging, especially tomographic imaging, allows me to combine my two favorite areas of interest, instrumentation and imaging, up to the point that I built my own CAT scanner and am now in the process of building a low-field MRI scanner. Recently, low-field MRI has gained a lot of interest, because it eliminates the need for the massive superconducting magnets..."
