Cho W. Solomon To
Dr. To obtained his doctoral degree in sound and vibration studies from the University of Southampton in April 1980. He is currently a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nebraska (UNL). Prior to joining UNL he was a professor (1994-96) and an associate professor (1986-94) at the University of Western Ontario. He was an associate professor (1985-86) and an assistant professor (1982-85) at the University of Calgary. Between 1982 and 1992 he was a University Research Fellow of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, Canada. He was a Research Fellow at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), University of Southampton during his doctoral degree studies. After his doctoral degree studies he worked briefly in the Wolfson Unit of the ISVR on machinery noise and vibration problems of drop hammers, and vibration diagnostics in helicopters of the Royal Navy before moving to the University of Calgary. His main academic interests are in nonlinear stochastic structural dynamics, nonlinear finite element analysis with particular reference to laminated composite plates and shells, nonlinear dynamics and control, and mechanics of carbon nano-tubes.
