Brief Bio
Professor Yeh's primary research field is ultrasound technology in biomedical applications. He has received numerous awards, including the Wu Dayou Memorial Award from the National Science and Technology Council of Taiwan (NTSC), the Outstanding Research Award by NTSC, and the Future Science and Technology Award twice by NTSC. He currently holds the position of distinguished professor at NTHU and is a fellow of International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE fellow) and a senior member of the IEEE Society as well as an editor for three SCI journals. Professor Yeh has published over 155 papers, including articles in prestigious journals such as PNAS, ACS Nano, Radiology, Biomaterials, and Nano Letters, and has presented over 200 proceedings abstracts/papers at seminars and conferences. Professor Yeh has extensive experience in implementing industry-university cooperation and has obtained 19 patents. He has also started two companies that specialize in ultrasound contrast agents (Trust Bio-sonics, 2013) and catheter-based ultrasound (SoundJet Medical, 2022). In terms of social services, while serving as the convener of the biomedical engineering division at NTSC of Taiwan, he promoted the development of innovative medical devices and made contributions to bilateral international research collaboration and academic conference exchanges.
