Prof Chan Bee Eng, Mary

Biography
Dr Mary Chan-Park received her B. Eng (Chem) and PhD from National University of Singapore and MIT (USA) respectively. She then worked in various technical management positions in USA and Singapore for ten years before joining NTU in 2001. In her last industrial job, she was the senior technical manager responsible for roll-to-roll embossing for flexible display. Since is now an associate professor in the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering.
Research Interests
Dr Chan-Park has interest and expertise in nanoimprint, micro- and nano-patterning, biomaterials, tissue engineering and carbon nanotubes. She has published more than 80 journal papers and holds more than 15 patents/patent applications in these areas. She has supervised more than 12 PhD students and 15 postdoctoral fellows.
