Dr. Ang Yee Sin is an Assistant Professor at the Science, Mathematics and Technology (SMT) Cluster. He obtained a Bachelor of Medical and Radiation Physics (2010) and a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter physics (2014) from the University of Wollongong, Australia. He is the Alumni of 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (Germany 2019). His research focuses on the physics and design of nanoscale devices for future energy-efficient computer and renewable energy technology. His research interests include the computational modelling of 2D materials and heterostructures, metal contacts to 2D semiconductor, beyond CMOS electronics, charge injection and transport physics in nanomaterials and light-matter interactions. He has published over 60 research articles, including Nature CommunicationsPhysical Review Letters, Advanced Materials, InfoMatPhysical Review Applied, Physical Review B, Applied Physics Letters, and MRS Bulletin. His research works have received multiple awards including Faculty Best Thesis Prize (Australia 2015), IPS Meeting Outstanding Poster Award (Singapore 2016), SUTD FIRST Industry Workshop: First Prize Winner (Singapore 2017), SUTD Research Fest: Runner-Up Prize (Singapore 2019).

Yee Sin enjoys long walks and is an avid collector of classical music recordings.

Research Interests

My research interest focuses on the application aspects of condensed matter and quantum materials. My current research works cover a broad spectrum of applied and device physics:

  • First-principle modeling of metal contact to 2D semiconductors
  • Charge injection physics in low-dimensional and topological material interfaces
  • Computational design of ultrascaled sub-10-nm transistors based on 2D semiconductor
  • New concepts of beyond CMOS computing electronics: Valleytronics and spintronics
  • Light-matter interactions of 2D heterostructures and topological materials
  • Computational design of GHz/THz photonics for 5G and beyond
  • Topoletrical circuits: Circuit design and experiments (in collaboration with Prof. Lee Ching Hua, NUS)
