Dr. Yeo joined the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at NTU in 1992 and is currently an Associate Professor. He received both his B.Sc and Ph.D degrees from the University of Birmingham (UK). He has conducted research in mechanics of gripping, mechanism synthesis, kinematics of parallel robots and expert systems. As a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham, he worked on an industrial project on the design and development of computer-controlled high-speed confectionery packaging systems. His research interests are in cable-driven mechanisms, synthesis of mechanisms, wearable haptic devices, and kinematics of reconfigurable robots. Dr. Yeo has published more than 100 technical articles in refereed international journals and conferences. He was voted by students for MAE Teacher of the Year Award in 1998.
