Dr. Yvonne Lin - Research Fellow

Short bio

Dr. Yvonne Lin graduated from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in 2004 with B.Eng. in Materials Engineering. She worked as an engineer at the Singapore Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA) for 2 years. She went on to obtain M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering in 2007 from NTU before joining Residues and Resource Reclamation Centre (R3C-NTU) as a Research Associate in 2008. Her research field then was mainly focused on solid waste management and treatment, particularly in incineration ash. Concurrently, from 2010 to 2015, she did a part-time PhD at NTU and her research topic was “Incineration bottom ash treatment through accelerated carbonation”. Following her conferment, she worked as a Research Fellow in the Sembcorp-NUS Corporate Lab for a year, focusing on treating and converting the incineration ashes produced within Sembcorp to secondary material. Subsequently, she joined Energy Research Institute @NTU as a Research Fellow in 2017.



  • Phase change materials for high-temperature latent heat storage

  • Minerals for sensible heat storage

  • Material modification

  • Waste conversion to thermal energy storage material



Application of Phase Change Materials for Improved Energy Efficiency in Waste-to-Energy Plants funded by NEA under the Waste-to-Energy Competitive Research Programme (ETRP 1501 104).


This project aims to increase the electrical efficiency of Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plants by developing a modular and cost-effective phase change material (PCM)-wall technology in place of the typical water-wall technology of heat recovery steam boilers.


Collaborators in the project:

Prof. Xavier Py from PROMES laboratory of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Dr. Li Tao from SIMTech.
