Meet your new faculty: Dr. Jun Yao
Dr. Jun Yao has garnered 30 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and is also named on six patents. Before coming to UMass Amherst, Yao served as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University working on: the synthesis, assembly, and characterization of low-dimensional nanomaterials; integrating nanomaterials for computing systems (e.g., constructing the first nanowire nanocomputer); developing novel mechano/electronic biosensors (e.g., inventing 3D multifunctional cellular bioprobes); and developing implantable biomedical and bioelectronical systems (e.g., syringe-injectable flexible electronics). Yao earned a Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Rice University, and an M.S. in Physics and B.S. in Electrical Engineering at Fudan University in China.
