Stretchable/Flexible Hybrid Electronics, Biomedical Materials & Devices, and Micro & Nano Electronic Systems
Dr. Yeo’s research in the field of biomedical science and bioengineering focuses on the fundamental and applied aspects of biomolecular interactions, soft materials, and nano-microfabrication for the development of nano-biosensors and soft bioelectronics.
My research and teaching focus on biomedicine and culture, theories of race and gender, and ways in which science and medicine are mobilized in social justice projects. My first book, Medicating Race: Heart Disease and Durable Preoccupations with Difference, tracks the intersecting discourses of race, pharmaceuticals, and cardiovascular disease in the United States from the founding of cardiology to the controversial approval of BiDil for heart failure in “self-identified black patients.” I am currently completing my second book manuscript, provisionally titled Synthesizing Hope: Matter, Knowledge, and Place in South African Drug Discovery, which draws on ethnographic research at a small South African pharmaceutical company to explore how it matters who makes pharmaceutical knowledge and where. An interactive site on this project can be explored at mappingithemba.com.
