Prof. Oldham received the Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 2006 and the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2000. He joined the University of Michigan in 2007 following a post-doctoral fellowship at the Army Research Laboratory.  Prof. Oldham and his research group study the intersection of control systems and micro-scale sensing and actuation, with interests in design for controllability, optimal and robust control, and novel sensor and actuator design.  Current applications of this research include terrestrial micro-robotics, endoscopic microscopy, and inertial and physiological sensing.
