Phillip L. Reu is a Principal Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. He has received an MS in biomedical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an MS and PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison (2002). Phillip specializes in developing novel full-field measurement techniques in previously un-measurable regimes often using digital image correlation (DIC) or coherent optical measurement techniques. He was awarded the Brewer award for outstanding experimentalist from SEM in 2016. Current research efforts in DIC are focused on uncertainty quantification. Phillip is the author of the “Art and Application of DIC” article series in the journal of Experimental Techniques, international instructor in DIC techniques for "Metrology beyond colors", chair of the DIC Challenge, vice president of the international digital image correlation society (iDICs), and pater familias to 5 kids.
