Deepak Uttamchandani is Professor of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, UK. Since the late 1980s he has been conducting research in the field of microtechnology including: techniques for the characterisation of micromechanical properties of materials; optically excited microresonator sensors; commercial-foundry-centred microfabrication of MEMS in polysilicon and silicon-on-insulator, MEMS design and radio-frequency (RF) MEMS. He has edited 2 books, guest-edited 2 journals and authored/co-authored around 200 publications. He has been a member of the UK EPSRC ranking panels (responsible for government funding of engineering research), was a member of the Basic Technology programme (org. by the UK government to find emerging technologies) and served on one of the UK Dept of Trade and Industry (DTI) Technology Programme panels in 2004.
