Da Jeng Yao is a Professor and Director at Institute of NanoEngineering and MicroSystems (NEMS), Taiwan, also an Adjunct Professor at Department of Power Mechanical Engineering and Department of Engineering System and Science, National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan. He was born at Taipei, Taiwan in 1969. He received his M.S. degree from Department of Mechanical Engineering, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, USA, in 1996, and Ph.D. degree from Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles, CA, USA, in 2001. There are more than 50 projects running or completed under his research team, and all of them were collaborated with other organizations (NTHU LS, Chem, EE, PME, NEMS, and ESS, NTU ME, NCTU ME, Chang-Gung Hospital, and ITRI, etc.). They can be divided into four categories: biosensing system, including proteins and amino acids detection, DNA sequencing recognition, and electronic nose for odd vapor detection; neuron engineering, including multielectrode arrays for brain research; biosample preparation system, including electrowetting on dielectrics (EWOD) on microfluidic system and surface modification of magnetic nanoparticles for drug delivery development; and microfluidic reproductive medicine on a chip, including motile sperm separation and embryo formation on a digital microfluidic chip. More than 50 journal papers were published at top journal among this research field, including Biosensors and Bioelectronics, Nanotechnology, Applied Energy, Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, and Lap on a chip, and so on. He got the Best Patent and Best Paper Award from Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Wu-Da-Yu Memorial Award (Young Investigator) from National Science Council in 2009, Shen-Yin Award in 2010, and Young Researcher Award from Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Republic of China.
