BEEE is pleased to announce a new Assistant Professor, Presidential Young Scholar, Dr Yuen Anthony Chun Yin, starting on 12 January 2023. Dr Yuen received his PhD degree in January 2015 from the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia.
Dr Yuen started his academic career as a Lecturer at UNSW in 2021 and was appointed as the Centre Manager in 2018 for the Australian Research Council-funded ARC Training Centre for Fire Retardant Materials and Safety Protection Technologies.
Throughout Dr Yuen’s research career, his total research funding sums up to AUD$11.62 million in external grants (ARC Discoveries, CRC-Ps, CRC Bushfire Tactical Research Fund, Innovation Connections, etc).
Dr Yuen's research focuses on the development of computational material science modelling techniques to deliver in-depth characterisations of the atomistic physiochemical behaviours of nanocomposites such as interfacial and surface science reactions between molecules. He has developed novel simulation approaches to enhance the reliability and capability of Molecular Dynamics (MD) and computational multiphase fluid dynamics (CMFD) models, which formulated a systematic, state-of-art numerical modelling platform to effectively and physically described the thermal degradation, chemical decomposition, thermo/electrical conductivity, charring and self-extinction behaviours of Advanced Materials (i.e. MXene, Graphene). Dr Yuen has published >110 journal articles and 2 book chapters with >3000 citations and 33 H-index on Google Scholar. Until Jan 2023, he has supervised 6 PhD and 4 MPhil candidates to completion. He serves as the guest editor for the journals Polymers, Molecules, Sensors, and Frontiers of Materials.
