|Dr Ooi Kiang TAN received his PhD from the Nanyang Technological University, MSc from the University of Edinburgh and B.Eng (1st Class Hons) from the National University of Singapore. He has been the Sub-Dean for Students Affair, Head of the Division of Microelectronics and Associate Chair for Curriculum & Graduate Studies in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), and Associate Dean (Projects) at the Graduate Studies Office (GSO) Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Currently, he is a Full Professor at the School of EEE and Director, Office of Admissions & Financial Aid (OAFA).
He has been actively involved in the Sensors, Actuators, and Smart Materials as well as the Nanoelectronics research groups in the Microelectronics Center, School of EEE. His research focus is in the area of microelectronics and functional materials and devices design for electronics, bio-medical, functional sensor and actuator applications. These includes the synthesis, fabrication and characterization of semiconductor & ferroelectric nano-structured materials, thick and thin film devices; high-energy ball milling and sol-gel processing, ICP-CVD nano-technology; bio-chemical sensor and actuator applications; and silicon-based device fabrication & integration. He has been the Chairman of International Steering Committee for the Asian Conference on Chemical Sensors. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and has served as associate editors for a number of journals including IEEE Sensors Journal. He serves in numerous national boards and committees, including the SERC A*STAR Steering/Management Committee for NanoElectronics Programme with 13 projects of amount S$13.8 millions, expert panel member for the Ministry of Education Academic Research Fund in the areas of Engineering, Physical & Chemical Sciences Discipline. He is current the principal investigator for 6 research grants amounting to S$2.5 millions. He has published over 130 international refereed journals and holds 5 patents.
