Assistant Professor, College of Engineering and Computer Science

Engineering and Computer Science


Dr. Cuong Do obtained a BS in electronics from the Vietnam National University, Hanoi, in 2004. He received MEng in Electronics and Semiconductor from Chungbuk National University, Korea, in 2007 and his PhD in Electronics Engineering from Cork Institute of Technology, Ireland, in 2012. His PhD dissertation focuses on the development of adaptive control methods for improving the performance and reliability of MEMS switches. The work is in collaboration with Analog Devices Inc. From 2013 to 2017, Dr. Cuong was a research associate in the Engineering Department, University of Cambridge. In Cambridge, he combined both pieces of knowledge in MEMS and CMOS fields to develop an ultra-low power, high sensitive strain sensor in Cambridge. Based on this work, two industrial fundings from IHI Corp., Japan, and 8Power Ltd., UK were secured. He also led a group of graduate students in their work on projects such as energy harvester systems, MEMS nonlinearity, and wireless sensor networks.
