Roland received his BEng and Ph.D. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in 2009 and 2016 respectively. After completing his Ph.D., he joined the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) as a Research Fellow under the Australian Research Council (ARC) Fellowship and worked as Research Scientist at Temasek Laboratories@NTU thereafter. He was awarded the International Postdoctoral Fellowship (IPF) from NTU in 2020 where he undertook his fellowship at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) from 2021 to 2023. In Apr 2023, he joined NTU as an Assistant Professor at the School of EEE.

US 2019/0016600 A1: Boron Nitride Material And Method Of Preparation Thereof (2019)
Abstract: A method of preparing a boron nitride material, such as boron nitride (BN) or boron carbonitride (BCN), is provided. The method may include providing a substrate, and sublimating an amine borane complex onto the substrate to obtain the boron nitride material. The amine borane complex may include, but is not limited to, borazine, amino borane, trimethylamine borane and triethylamine borane. In addition, the temperature at which the sublimating is carried out may be varied to control composition of the boron nitride material formed. In addition, various morphologies can be obtained by using the present method, namely films, nanotubes and porous foam.
