Dr. Yeo’s research in the field of biomedical science and bioengineering focuses on the fundamental and applied aspects of biomolecular interactions, soft materials, and nano-microfabrication for the development of nano-biosensors and soft bioelectronics.
Recently, his group opened a new research area in biomedical engineering with a novel technology: “soft, wearable electronics for health monitoring and human-machine interfaces”. His research group took the lead to design and develop this unique system that is based on soft biomimetic materials, stretchable mechanics designs, and hybrid system integration, aiming for advancing human health and wellness. Unlike the conventional bulky and heavy wearable devices, these innovative “skin-like” electronics are based on a completely different class of technologies that offer non-invasive, gentle lamination and comfortable wearability on the skin. Integration of multiple nano-micro sensors and actuators along with miniaturized wireless telemetry on a soft membrane provides continuous, long-term monitoring of human health and persistent human-machine interfaces.
