Brief Bio:
Siu-Tung Yau has graduated from Pui Cheng Middle School in Hong Kong. He received B.S. in Electrical Engineering degree in 1983 from University of Southern California. He received M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1986 and 1991, respectively.  Since then, he has assumed different research/teaching positions. Presently, he is on the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cleveland State University, where he is also a faculty member of the Applied Biomedical Engineering Program.

Dr. Yaus research is highly interdisciplinary in nature, encompassing physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering. He has studied inorganic, organic and biological materials in relation to nanotechnology.  In particular, he made important contribution to the area of protein crystallization, using atomic force microscopy to reveal the formation of crystal nucleus and individual defects. Dr. Yaus present research covers areas in bioelectronics and molecular electronics. His research group at Cleveland State University is currently engaged in developing new materials for molecular electronic applications and prototyping biosensors based on improved enzyme immobilization techniques. Dr. Yau has authored and co-authored over forty publications in referred journals.
