Caleb Farny received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University in 2007, working in the area of thermal deposition from acoustically-driven cavitation in tissue media. Following a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School, he returned to the Dept of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University, where he is a Lecturer.
Sean B. Andersson received a B.S. in engineering and applied physics (Cornell University, 1994), an M.S. in mechanical engineering (Stanford University, 1995), and a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering (University of Maryland, College Park, 2003). He has worked at AlliedSignal Aerospace and Aerovironment, Inc. and is currently an Associate Professor of mechanical engineering and of systems engineering with Boston University. His research interests include systems and control theory with applications in scanning probe microscopy, dynamics in molecular systems, and robotics.
