PNNL's Xiao-Ying Yu has joined the review board for the journal Micromachines.
Yu, a chemical engineer and physical chemist, will apply her expertise on microfluids and the applications in making micromachines as an editorial board reviewer for submitted papers.
She is one of roughly 100 reviewers on the board that were appointed by the journal. Yu has reviewed papers for the journal over the past few years, but this is a formal move to the review board.
