PEOPLE OF COM DEV: Chief Scientist, Dr. Ming Yu

PEOPLE OF COM DEV will periodically feature one of our COM DEV International team members in ways you may not know them - everyone has a story about what drives them and how they see their role at work and in life. In this series we will look at individuals from all over our organization, in many different roles, to explore how our people have shaped our innovation and success, often with surprising twists and turns along the way.

Our inaugural article features Chief Scientist, Dr. Ming Yu, from our Sheldon Drive facility in Cambridge. Many of you may know of Ming’s impressive technical innovations but did you know that he dreamed of being a great poet when he was young? Or that he learned to hone his English language skills with the motivation to understand and compete with his co-workers’ penchant for bad jokes? You will also see that his perseverance to excel on the job carries over to the methodology he uses to improve his golf game (although he is admittedly, by far a better scientist than golfer).
