Yuan is a senior at Princeton, majoring in physics and pursuing certificates in biophysics and musical performance. He began study of the violin at the age of five and the piano at six. He entered the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts as a junior scholarship student in piano and violin at the age of ten. Over the past two summers, he participated in the Aspen Music Festival and the Texas Cliburn Piano Institute. He has given several solo recitals and chamber music performances for The Friends of Music at Princeton.

Mindlin Memorial Fund, established by the Mindlin family to benefit performance instruction of orchestra members, including scholarships for private study.
