Yimo Han

WEBSITE(S)| Han Lab

Dr. Han is an assistant professor of Materials Science and NanoEngineering. She received her B.S. in Physics from Tsinghua University, and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Cornell with Prof. David Muller. Her research focused on electron microscopy and the characterization of nanomaterials. After graduating from Cornell University, she joined Prof. Nieng Yan's group in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University to expand her knowledge on cryo-EM, as well as develop ways to utilize nanomaterials in biological characterization. Dr. Han started her own lab in the Department of Materials Science and NanoEngineering in July 2020.

Research Areas

Dr. Han’s laboratory utilizes electron microscopy and related techniques to investigate a wide range of material systems including low-dimensional nanomaterials, biomaterials/molecules, and interfaces. Her lab aims to understand the structure and properties of material systems at an atomic level. Our ultimate goal is to provide novel materials/interface design for next-generation electronics, biosensing, clean energy harvesting, etc. As our group works at the intersection of materials, biology, and engineering, we are open to collaborations from all areas where small things make a difference.
