  • PhD Nanyang Technological University 2007
  • BEng(Hons) (Mech & Prodtn Engrg) Nanyang Technological University 2003
Asst/Prof Yeong received her BEng( 1st class Hons) and PhD degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the Nanyang Technological University. Prior to joining MAE in 2013, she has industrial experiences in technical and supervisory functions in research and development, manufacturing and quality systems.

She has worked as a Research Engineer in SIMTech Singapore, Associate Research Scientist at Abbott Vascular, Research Fellow at MSE NTU, and Principal Engineer at Alcon Singapore. Her main research interest is in 3D printing, bioprinting and the translational of the advanced technologies for industrial applications. Her current research topics include 3D printing of metal implant, multi-functional and lightweight structures and bioprinting for tissue engineering. She is also keen on developing translational technologies and new inventions.

She has co-authored 2 textbooks in Bioprinting and 3D printing. She leads sponsored projects in both 3D printing and Bioprinting.
