John Vetelino

Emeritus Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, IEEE Fellow

Education: 1969, Ph.D., Electrical Engineering, University of Rhode Island

Dr. Vetelino is one of the founding members of the Frontier Institute for Research in Sensor Technologies. He received his PhD degree in EE from the University of Rhode Island in 1969 and then joined the EE faculty at the University of Maine. Dr. Vetelino served as the Acting Director of LASST in 1982 and 1983 and as the EE chairperson from 1983 to 1987. He has been very active in solid state, microwave acoustics and sensor research and has received over 100 different research contracts. Three small businesses, namely, Sensor Research and Development Corporation, BIODE Corporation and Microconversion Technology were incubated from his research group. He has presented many scientific papers both in the US and abroad and has authored or co-authored over 200 publications. He also consults with government laboratories and many industries and serves as a reviewer for several scientific journals and government funding agencies.

Research Interests: Microsensors, Microacoustics, and Solid State
