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.

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.

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 Station1, the inaugural Pedagogy Workshop: Co-creating the Future Through Socially-Directed Science and Technology sponsored by Station1 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!
