|Dr. Ng Geok Ing received his Ph.D degree in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1990. From 1991 to 1993, he was a Research Fellow at the Centre for Space Terahertz Technology in the University of Michigan, working on microwave/ millimeter-wave semiconductor devices and MMICs. In 1993, he joined TRW Inc. in Space Park, California as a Senior Member of Technical Staff engaging in the R&D work on GaAs and InP-based HEMTs for high frequency low-noise and power MMIC applications. In 1995, he joined Nanyang Technological University as a Lecturer in the School of EEE. In 1996, he became a Senior Lecturer and was seconded to be the Programme Manager for the III-V MMICs Programme at the Microelectronics Centre in NTU.
In May 2000, he co-founded DenseLight Semiconductor Pte. Ltd. which is a NTU spin-off Singapore-based international photonics semiconductor company funded by international Venture Capitalist. While in DenseLight Semiconductors Pte. Ltd., he held the position of Chief Operating Officer in charge of setting up the manufacturing facility and operations. He also held the title of Vice-President of Engineering for technology development particularly in the area of III-V MMIC.
Dr. Ng is currently seconded to the Temasek Laboratories at the Nanyang Technological University as the Programme Manager for the MMIC Design Centre. His current research interests include device physics, fabrication and characterisation of microwave devices with different III-V material systems for low-noise, power and MMIC applications and MEMS. Dr. Ng is a member of IEEE, Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu. In 1990, he was awarded the European Microwave Prize for his work on InP-based heterostructure monolithic amplifiers.
