Dr. Schiano joined the faculty of Penn State University in 1994, following three years as a visiting assistant professor at the University-of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research interests in control system applications span three areas: nuclear resonance, neural network controllers, and microelectromechanical systems. Jeff Schiano has also organized a microelectromechanical systems research group in the Department of Electrical Engineering. His focus within the group is on the development of feedback control systems that enable electron tunneling based transducers to provide high sensitivity measurements of linear acceleration and angular velocity.
