An American engineer, Yueh-Lin (Lynn) Loo was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is presently the Theodora D. ’78 & William H. Walton III ’74 Professor in Engineering and Director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University.

Lynn received her BSE in Chemical Engineering and in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1996 and her PhD from Princeton University in 2001. She spent a year at Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies before joining the faculty in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Texas at Austin. She returned to Princeton University in 2007. She is interested in the processing and structural development of materials for lightweight and flexible solar cells and circuits, the combination is being explored for self-powered “smart” windows to increase occupant comfort, building and energy efficiencies. This technology is being further developed by Andluca Technologies, a startup that Lynn co-founded in 2017. With over 150 publications, Lynn has delivered more than 200 invited and plenary lectures globally and she serves on numerous international advisory boards of peer academic institutions, journals and private companies. She is a fellow of the American Physical Society, a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and a Strategic Advisor for NewWorld Capital Group. She has been recognized with Sloan and Beckman Fellowships, the John H. Dillon Medal from the American Physical Society, the Peter and Edith O’Donnell Award in Engineering from the Texas Academy of Medicine, Science and Engineering, and the Alan P. Colburn Award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

Lynn was Associate Director of External Partnerships at the Andlinger Center from 2011 to 2015, during which she launched and led Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership to promote teacher-student- practitioner interactions and foster collaboration with the private sector. She served as Acting Vice Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science in the spring of 2016 and was appointed Director of the Andlinger Center in July 2016. With more than 115 affiliated faculty members spanning science and engineering disciplines and humanities, the Andlinger Center is developing solutions to ensure our energy and environmental future.
