Assoc Prof Chng Eng Siong

Asst Prof Chng Eng Siong graduated with BEng (Hons) (1991) and
PhD from the University of Edinburgh (1996),
UK, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
His PhD thesis was "Applications of nonlinear filters with the
linear in parameter structure".

I have worked in the industry for seven years prior to joining
NTU on Jan 2003. Listing in chronological order: From 1996,
Riken (Japan) as post-doc, I2R (formelly ISS, KRDL in Singapore)
