Daniel Ou-Yang received his BS (1975) and M.Sc. (1977) in Physics from Fu-Jen Catholic University of Taiwan and his PhD in Physics from UCLA (under the supervision of Daniel Kivelson and Ray Orbach) in 1985. After a postdoc training at the University of Pennsylvania and Exxon Corporate Research Lab, (under Paul Chaikin), he joined Lehigh University as an assistant professor in 1988. He is currently a full professor of physics and bioengineering and director of the Emulsion Polymers Institute of Lehigh. He also co-direct the Lehigh Integrated Degree in Engineering and Arts and Sciences (IDEAS) program. His currently research interests include statistical physics in systems far from equilibrium, optical imaging and characterization of soft and biological materials at the interface of living and nonliving systems. His research is funded by the US National Science Foundation and supports from industry.
