Dr. Evelyn Yim is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, and a member of the Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology and Centre of Bioengineering and Biotechnology at the University of Waterloo. Evelyn joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2016.

Experienced with nanofabrication technologies and stem cell culture, Evelyn and her group are interested in applying the knowledge of biomaterial-stem cell interaction to direct stem cell differentiation and tissue regeneration for the applications in neural regeneration, vascular and corneal tissue engineering.

Evelyn Yim received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University before undergoing her post-doctoral training at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. Between 2007 and 2015 Evelyn worked in Singapore, where she held a joint appointment at the National University of Singapore, as faculty in the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Surgery, and the Mechanobiology Institute Singapore, a Research Center of Excellence supported by the National Research Foundation Singapore, as a principal investigator studying how chemical and biomechanical cues influence stem cell behavior
