Lydia graduated with Bachelor of Applied Science (First Class Honors) and Doctor of Philosophy, both in Materials Science and Engineering from (NTU). After her PhD, she worked as a Senior Engineer at Chartered Semiconductor (now called Global Foundries) on advanced microelectronic devices. She was also a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Stanford University. She joined NTU as a Teaching Fellow in 2008 and is currently an Associate Professor at the School. She presently serves as Assistant Chair (Research) at the School of MSE, Cluster Director at Energy Research Institute at NTU (ERI@N).
