Biography
Dr Wonkeun Chang received BTech in Optoelectronics (2004) and MSc in Physics (2006) from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and subsequently his PhD in Physics (2010) from the Australian National University, Australia. He then joined the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Germany as a postdoctoral fellow, where he developed expertise in ultrafast optical phenomena in hollow waveguides. In 2013, Dr Chang was granted a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award from the Australian Research Council, and led a project on complex pulse dynamics and extreme events in ultrafast laser systems at the Australian National University. In October 2017, Dr Chang was appointed as a Nanyang Assistant Professor at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
