Julia Aebersold, PhD



Julia earned her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Louisville in 2005.  Her research developed a micro-electromechanical (MEMS)-based capacitive bending strain sensor with a biocompatible housing for a telemetric strain monitoring system. Julia also holds a ME (1994) and a BS (1992) in Mechanical Engineering.  After earning her Ph.D. she continued to perform federally funded research as a Research Scientist from 2005 until 2012 until she began managing the Micro/Nano Technology Center in 2012.
