Bio: Dr. Yee's research focuses on the physical and mechanical properties of polymers and soft materials, particularly on how they impact nanotechnology. He has made important contributions regarding these materials, and his inventions in the field have led to two U.S. patents. Most of 140 papers he has published to date center around three areas: toughening mechanisms in engineering polymers, molecular relaxation mechanisms in glassy polymers, and applications of the positronium annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) technique to the study of polymers and other materials. His recent research interests include nanocomposites, nanoimprinting and nanopatterning, ultrathin polymer films, polymer MEMS, and physics of glassy polymers.

He was recently selected as one of about 200 materials scientists worldwide to be listed in He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and of the Polymers, Materials Science and Engineering Division of the American Chemical Society.
