Yi Hou is a Presidential Young Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He was appointed the Head of the Perovskite-based Multijunction Solar Cell Group at the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) in September 2020. Yi obtained his Ph.D. degree (SAOT scholarship) in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany. His postdoctoral training in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto was mainly focused on photophysics and transport properties of the hybrid semiconductor in photovoltaics. He has several visiting scholar experiences at various universities overseas, such as the University of Oxford, UK; Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland; Australia National University (ANU), Australia; and Stanford University, US.

Yi was named one of the Innovators Under 35 (Asia Pacific) by MIT Tech Review for his work in developing record-efficient perovskite-based tandem solar cells. The world record efficiency of perovskite/organic tandem solar cell has been included in the “Solar cell efficiency tables (Version 60)” in 2022. Clarivate Analytics included Yi in the list of Highly Cited Researchers in the field of Cross-Field (2022).
