Prof. Ng received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 1997 and 2000, respectively. He was conferred a Ph.D. degree in 2003 by the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK, where he investigated the impact ionization process in wide bandgap semiconductors for applications in telecommunications and solar/visible-blind UV avalanche photodiodes (APDs). He is presently a faculty member of the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. In addition to APD research, he is also investigating the use of Biophotonics imaging techniques for cancer detection. He is a member of the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society.
My research expertises include the physics of impact ionization process in semiconductors, the design and characterization of advanced photodetectors, and the use of Biophotonics imaging techniques for medical diagnosis.
