Professor Yap is interested in the fundamentals of synthesis, characterization, and applications of functional materials, including zero-, one-, and two- dimensional B-C-N nanostructures (carbon, boron nitride, boron carbon-nitride, carbon nitride, boron, etc); Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs); and ZnO. In addition to basic research, his research group is dedicated in creating broader impacts to people, health, environment, and renewable energy harvesting. Professor Yap has edited multiple books, Material Research Society proceedings volumes, and journal special issues. His group has published a series of book and encyclopedia chapters, and more than 100 peer-reviewed articles.
