Director, Facility for Analysis, Characterisation, Testing and Simulation (FACTS)
|Dr Lam Yeng Ming received her BASc (Hons) in Materials Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. After working at Texas Instruments as a development engineer, she then went on to read her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, and graduated in 2001. She has given talks at various conferences, labs and workshops. She joins NTU as an Assistant Professor since 2001.|
|Yeng Ming’s research interests are in the understanding and the application of self-organization of peptides and polymers. She has studied a wide range of self-assembled systems in selective solvents and thin films. Her research also includes the application of self-assembly on the synthesis of nanostructures/nanoparticles, nanotemplating, organic memory, photovoltaics, etc. |
Yeng Ming has also demonstrated through the use of both experiments and calculations, that it is possible to accurately parameterize copolymer systems. The mesoscale morphology of the copolymer system can be predicted accurately through simulation making use of the dynamic mean field density method. This allows for a simple approach in the design of copolymer for self-assembly and to understand the conditions for self-assembly. This work resulted in the publication of numerous papers and 2 book chapters. She has also obtained research funding for self-assembly work in other applications such as surface modifications and development of nanoreactors for controlled synthesis of nanomaterials. Her most recent funding obtained through the Competitive Research Programme funding from National Research Foundation as a Project PI under a S$10 million programme on Nanonets: New Materials, Devices for Integrated Energy Harvesting.
