Molly Sing

PhD Student

Molly Sing received her BS in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Cum Laude from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (Terre Haute, IN) in 2009. In 2011 she received her MS in Mechanical Engineering and in 2014 her MS in Electrical Engineering, both from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN). Her research interests include the dynamics and reliability of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). She has worked on a variety of projects including MEMS varactors, vanadium dioxide limiters, MEMS tunable aluminum nitride RF filters, titanium dioxide memristors, and silicon nanowire resonators. She started full time at Texas Instruments in 2014, and currently works with MEMS deformable mirror devices (DMD) in DLP, which act as spatial light modulators. Her current project, as a part of her PhD at UTD, is to demonstrate closed loop control of a DMD past the open loop electrostatic collapse.
