Dr Yeung's research interests are in the field of intense laser interactions with plasmas through both experimental studies and numerical simulations.  He studies the unique secondary radiation sources that result from these interactions including attosecond scale, extreme-ultraviolet pulses and ultrafast bursts of fast ions.  

He has authored/co-authored more than 30 peer reviewed publications including Nature Photonics and Physical Review Letters.  His research has funding support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
