Before joining HKUST, Yansong Yang was a postdoc research associate at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he received the M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 2017 and 2019. He has won 2nd Place in Best Paper Competition at the 2018 IEEE International Microwave Symposium, and the best paper award at the 2019 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium. He was also a finalist for the Advanced Practices Paper Competition Award at the 2020 IEEE International Microwave Symposium and the Best Paper Award at the 2018 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium. He is also a recipient of the 2019 P. D. Coleman Graduate Research Award from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UIUC. He also received the 2022 Microwave Prize from the IEEE Microwave Theory & Technology Society. He is awarded the 2023 Early Career Award from the IEEE Electron Devices Society.

His works have been awarded Best Paper Awards 6 times and Best Paper finalists 2 times in top-tier international conferences. His publications have been awarded as "JMEMS RightNow Papers" of IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems. He has more than 20 patents granted or pending in the U.S. and China, and his published works have been adopted in dozens of patents of RF companies.

His lab focuses on developing multi-physics (including electrical, mechanical, and optical domains) hybrid microsystems for signal processing, sensing, and computing on a single chip. The related work includes the design and nano-microfabrication techniques of novel RF MEMS platforms (resonators, filters, delay lines, switches, etc.) and photonic integrated circuits for higher operating frequencies and efficiency.
