Jui-Ming Yeh was born in Hsin-Chu, Taiwan, China, on November 14, 1964. He finished his bachelor degree and M.S. degree at Chemistry Department of Fu-Jen Cathodic University, New Taipei, Taiwan, in 1988 and 1990, respectively. In 1992, he went to Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pa, USA, in order to pursuit his Ph. D. degree in the field of material chemistry under the supervision of Professor Yen Wei. His Ph.D. dissertation was concentrated on the studies of conducting polymers, solgel materials, and organic inorganic hybrid materials. After about four years, he finished his Ph. D. degree in 1996. Subsequently, he went backe to Taiwan and spent approximately two years, from 1996 to 1998, as a Researcher at Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) to develop novel polymeric surfactants and to explore practical applications of silicone related rubbers and resins. In 1998, Professor Yeh entered Chemistry Department of Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) as an Assistant Professor. In the following five years, he concentrated his research interests on the preparation of polymer nanocomposite materials through effectively dispersion of different morphological nanofillers (e.g., nanolayered clay, silica nanoparticles, carbon nanotube, and gold nanoparticles) into various polymeric matrices and further developed novel applications, especially in anticorrosion coatings. He had been promoted to Associate Professor and Full Professor at Chemistry Department of CYCU, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. Since 1994, and up to now, his research career has generated 120 science related publications, about six US patents, and one professional book. Recently, his research topics focus on the preparation of nanocomposite. Lately, he also devoted his efforts into biomaterial field such as the preparation of electroactive biocompatible porous scaffolds for the adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells, and electrochemical biosensor research activities.
