About Dr Bin Yang

Bin Yang received his MSc and PhD degrees in Electronic Engineering in 2004 and 2008 respectively, in the Antenna and Electromagnetics Group of the Department of Electronic Engineering, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), UK.

After the PhD, Dr Yang remained in the Antenna and Electromagnetics Group of QMUL as a Postdoctoral Researcher. In September 2013, Dr.Yang moved to the University of Bolton as a Lecturer and then joined the University of Chester as a Senior Lecturer in September 2015.


Dr. Yang’s current teaching modules in University of Chester are: SE4022 Applied Electromagnetics and SE5041 Electrical Machines.


Dr Yang is active in a number of research areas including the development of millimetre(mm)-wave and Terahertz (THz) measurement systems, mm-wave/THz applications in material, biology and chemistry sciences; electronic circuit, radio frequency (RF) and mm-wave technologies for Healthcare and Wellbeing; microwave metamaterials, Antenna and radio propagations in both soft and solid condensed materials.
