Eric M. Yeatman FREng, FIEEE has been a member of academic staff in Imperial College London since 1989, and Professor of Micro-Engineering since 2005. He was appointed Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Sept. 2015. He has published more than 200 papers and patents on optical devices and materials, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), and other topics.
In 2011 he was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering Silver Medal, and was made a Fellow of the Academy in 2012. He is Co-Director of the college's Digital Economy Lab:
Prof. Yeatman is also co-founder and non-executive director of Microsaic Systems plc, which listed on the London Stock Exchange in April 2011. Microsaic develops and markets miniature mass spectrometers based on MEMS technology, and is the first company to introduce a miniature mass spectrometer for liquid analysis to the market. Prof. Yeatman was Chairman of Microsaic from 2004-2013, and acting CEO from Jan-Nov 2012.
He has been principal or co-investigator on more than 20 research projects, with over £18M in research funds raised. He has acted as a design consultant for several international companies, and technical advisory board member to two venture capital funds. His current research interests are in energy sources for wireless devices, radio frequency and photonic MEMS, sensor networks, and 2D materials.
