Overview


Yanguang (Sunny) Yu   received BE from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China in 1986, and Ph.D. degree from the Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2000, all in Electrical Engineering.  She joined the University of Wollongong (UoW) since 2007 and is now working as an Associate Professor at the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering (SECTE) in this University.  She was with the Faculty of Information Engineering, Zhengzhou University, China, on various appointments including a Lecturer (1986-1999), Associate Professor (2000-2004), Professor (2005-2007).   From 2001 and 2002 she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Opto-Electronics Information Science and Technology Laboratory, Tianjin University, China.  She also had a number of visiting appointments including a Visiting Fellow at the Optoelectronics Group, Department of Electronics, University of Pavia, Italy (2002-2003), a Principal Visiting Fellow at the University of Wollongong, Australia (2004-2005), a visiting Professor at the Engineering School ENSEEIHT, University of Toulouse, France respectively in June, 2004,September 2006 and June 2015. 

Yu has been working on non-contact optical sensing using optical feedback laser interferometer since her PHD in 2000.  Her skills include use of semiconductor lasers,  fibre,  weak signal detection, and optical and electrical signal processing.

Her research interests include sensing and measurements, 3-D profile measurements, signal processing and communication systems,and recently focus on microwave photonic sensing topic.
