Amy Shen received her Ph. D in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2001. She is currently a professor in Micro/Bio/Nanofluidic Unit at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan (https://groups.oist.jp/mbnu). She was a faculty member at Mechanical Engineering at University of Washington before moving to Japan in 2014. Professor Shen's research is focused on rheology and microfluidics of complex fluids, and viscoelastic and inertio-elastic instabilities at small length scales, with applications in biotechnology, particularly in biosensing. Amy received Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award in 2003 and the National Science Foundation's CAREER Award in 2007. Amy was also a Fulbright Scholar in 2013.
