|Leong Kah Fai is an associate professor in the School of Mechanical and Production Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. He obtained his B.Eng. (Mech.) with Honours from the National University of Singapore in 1981 and M.Sc. degrees in Engineering Product Design and Mechanical Engineering, from Stanford University in 1987. Prior to joining NTU, he has worked several years as a product development engineer and designer in the Singapore electronics industries. He was awarded the Merit Award in 1994 and Distinguished Award in 1997 for his contributions to the national standardisation program. He has co-authored four books, published several book chapters and more than 100 papers in international journals, conferences, and seminars in these areas. He has been invited as a keynote speaker for a number of premier conferences and has acted as reviewers for several journals, including Trends in Biotechnology, Biomaterials, International Journal of Product Development, etc. He is also the winner of the Emerald Highly Commended Award in Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence 2007 for his paper in Rapid Prototyping Journal,|
|His principal areas of research interests are in rapid prototyping and its applications in biomedical applications, including tissue engineering, product design and development science and design education.|
