Eugene Yee received the B.S. degree in engineering physics (top graduate) and the Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics from the University of Saskatchewan in 1980 and 1985, respectively. In 1987, he joined Defense R&D Canada–Suffield as a Defense Scientist. He currently holds appointments as an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering, University of Waterloo, at the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Manitoba, and at the Waterloo Green Energy Research Institute. His current research interests are multiscale multiphysics simulation of realistic environmental flows, turbulent diffusion in the atmosphere (particularly in the complex urban environment), uncertainty quantification of model predictions, development of leading-edge models for turbulence prediction in the context of wind resource assessment for clean energy technology, and formulation and implementation of a sensor-driven modeling paradigm for source reconstruction. He has served as a Scientific Advisor and as a Consultant to a number of branches within the Department of National Defence and other Canadian federal government agencies on toxic gas and aerosol hazard assessment. He is the corecipient of four international awards from The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) in 1997, 2002, 2005, and 2008, as well as the recipient of the Best Technical Paper Award from NATO Research and Technology Organization (RTO) for a paper delivered at NATO Modeling and Simulation Conference in 2009.
