Academic Profile

Dr Leonard Ng is an International Postdoctoral Scholar funded by the Singapore Ministry of Education. He will join the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) as an Assistant Professor following visiting academic stints at University College London (UCL) and at the Commonwealth Scientific International Research organisation (CSIRO). Prior to taking up the fellowship, Leonard received a highly competitive Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellowship to develop commercial applications in the renewable energy sector in the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe for a patent which he and his colleagues developed via a deep tech startup. Leonard received his PhD in Engineering from the University of Cambridge in Engineering where he was based at the Cambridge Graphene Centre. He worked on developing low-cost and high-throughput printed electronics using Graphene and other 2d materials such as MXenes, hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) and Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs). Leonard also holds a Masters in Polymers, Colorants and Fine chemicals from the University of Leeds and received his Bachelors in Political Science from the Singapore Management University.
