Jackie Y. Ying was born in Taipei, and raised in Singapore and New York, and graduated with B.E. summa cum laude in Chemical Engineering from The Cooper Union in 1987. As an AT& T Bell Laboratories Ph.D. Scholar at Princeton University, she began research in materials chemistry, linking the importance of materials processing and microstructure with the tailoring of materials surface chemistry and energetics. She pursued research in nanocrystalline materials with Prof. Herbert Gleiter at the Institute for New Materials, Saarbrücken, Germany as NSF-NATO Post-doctoral Fellow and Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. Prof. Ying has been on the Chemical Engineering faculty at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since 1992, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1996 and to Professor in 2001. She is currently the Executive Director of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), Singapore, and an Adjunct Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT. IBN is a new multidisciplinary national research institute founded in March 2003 to advance the frontiers of engineering, science and medicine; it has grown to over 190 research staff and students under Prof. Ying?s leadership. Its mission is to conduct research at the interface of bioengineering and nanotechnology. By creating a knowledge base that bridges between molecular sciences and nanotechnology, IBN seeks to create novel nanostructured materials, devices and systems with unique functionalities and commercialization potential for biomedical applications.

You can also learn more about her from the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research of Singapore and a lecture she gave about medical and sustainable technologies.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
