In EASF's third season, Prof. Yeo moderated a session of the EASF webinar on (02/28/2021) with a very exciting slate of speakers
touching on important topics in molecular understanding of material properties.
The J2 Lab's collaborative grant with Cornell MAE Profs. Nikolaos Bouklas (PI) and Nelly Andarawis-Puri (co-PI) is
awarded by NSF!
The J2 Lab's collaborative seed grant with Prof. Wenwen Huang is featured by Zhejiang University in both
Delighted and grateful to the Cornell China Center and Zhejiang University for
seeding our inter-university,
new PI collaboration with Prof. Wenwen Huang to work towards our research group's vision of
Engineering Living Materials. This is our group's very first grant and it will start us off on an excellent footing.
We are also very thankful for the hard work and excellent comments from the reviewers.
Prof. Yeo is highlighted as the
Journal of Material Chemistry B's Emerging Investigators for 2020.
Together with our group's young budding scientists, Chenxi Zhai, Tianjiao Li, and Haoyuan Shi,
we review the discovery and design of next-generation bio-inspired materials by harnessing the virtual space in
materials design: materials omics (materiomics), materials informatics, computational modelling and simulations,
artificial intelligence (AI), and bigdata. This is critical as materials chemistry is at the forefront of the global
“Fourth Industrial Revolution”, in part by establishing a “Materials 4.0” paradigm. A key aspect of this paradigm is
developing methods to effectively integrate hardware, software, and biological systems.
In collaboration with chemists and engineers from MIT,
Prof. Yeo co-authored
a recent paper in Advanced Functional Materials
on a roll‐to‐roll (R2R) transfer technique to improve the electrical properties of transferred graphene on
flexible substrates using parylene as an interfacial layer.
Challenges make opportunities. The COVID-19 pandemic has inevitably changed the methods of education globally.
In this backdrop, the American Institute of Mathematical Sciences is launching a new journal,
STEM Education (STEME),
that demonstrates our passion and enthusiasm for sharing and promoting innovation and excellence in
STEM education research and practices to enhance the future of STEM education globally.
STEME is a forum for dissemination and debate via original research into STEM education by, and for,
an international community of STEM education scholars, practitioners and policy-makers at all levels.
In my capacity as one of the Editor-in-Chiefs of STEME, I cordially invite your submission.
In collaboration with chemists and engineers from Harbin Engineering University and Northeast Forestry University,
Prof. Yeo co-authored
a recent paper in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces
on high capacity anodes for sodium storage using carbon derived from nature's
exceptional material, wood.
This week, Prof. Yeo is Spotlight-ed by Cornell Engineering
Read about Prof. Yeo's academic journey!
Delighted to meet some of the undergrads and faculties from Cornell's MAE in our inaugural Mentorship Mixer.
We shared some of our experiences on approaching faculty members, job interviews, and job searches.
Equally happy to know that MAE has such a wonderful space for active learning!
During the 23rd to 26th of Jan 2020, Prof. Yeo was in Lawrence, MA, to attend an amazing program organised by
the inaugural Pedagogy Workshop: Co-creating the Future Through Socially-Directed Science and Technology sponsored by
and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's J-WEL.
Prof. Yeo learnt many useful and directly applicable pedagogical
concepts to engage students in both big and small classes, as well as across disciplines.
Prof. Yeo is grateful to all the facilitators and attendees for all the excellent advice, insights, and discussions.
So excited to be back at Station1
in Boston and Lawrence, MA, with all the founders and instructors!
Together with participants from all over the world, we will be exploring
Co-Creating the Future Through Socially-Directed Science and Technology over the next few days
in the Pedagogy Workshop conducted by Station1.
Applications for the Summer 2020 Station1 Frontiers Fellowship is open till 1st February 2020,
so APPLY SOON!

The J2 Lab for Engineering Living Materials in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
at Cornell University invites applications for one Postdoctoral Research position, slated to begin in January 2020.
Stay tuned, more details coming soon.
