E. H. Yong is a theoretical physicist with background in statistical physics and applied mathematics. He graduated from Stanford university in 2003 with a BSc in Physics, a BSc in Mathematics, and a MSc in Statistics. In 2012, he obtained his PhD from Harvard University. He joined the faculty of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University in 2015.
My research may be broadly divided into the statistical and biological, although there is often some overlap. Among the physical processes occurring in nature, I am particularly interested in:

1) Statistical characterization of an energy landscape.
2) Mathematical framework for non-equilibrium/stochastic phenomena.
3) Understanding geometry, pattern, and shape in nature.
4) Symmetries or invariances in nature.
5) Complex networks, including social, traffic, etc.
