Dr Leslie Yeo is currently an Australian Research Fellow and Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Co-Director of the Micro/Nanophysics Research Laboratory at Monash University, Australia. He received his Ph.D. from Imperial College London in 2002, for which he was awarded the Dudley Newitt prize for a computational/theoretical thesis of outstanding merit. Prior to joining Monash University, he was a Mathematical Modeller at Det Norske Veritas UK and a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. Dr Yeo was the recipient of the 2007 Young Tall Poppy Science Award from the Australian Institute for Policity and Science 'in recognition of the achievements of outstanding young researchers in the sciences including physical, biomedical, applied sciences, engineering and technology,' and a finalist in the 2008 Eureka Prize People's Choice Award. His work has been featured widely in the media, for example, on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's science television program Catalyst, the 3RRR radio broadcast Einstein-a-Go-Go, and in various articles in the Economist, the Washington Times, the Age, ABC Science Online, and Discovery Channel Online. Dr Yeo is the author of more than 70 research publications and more than 10 patent applications and is currently the Associate Editor of the American Institute of Physics journal Biomicrofluidics.
