|Dr Chee joined the School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences in March 2008, where he is currently Associate Professor and Chair of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. Dr Chee received the B.Math. degree in Computer Science and Combinatorics & Optimization, and the M.Math. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, from the University of Waterloo, ON, Canada, in 1988, 1989, and 1996, respectively. Prior to his appointment at the Nanyang Technological University, he had been Program Director of Interactive Digital Media R&D in the Media Development Authority of Singapore, Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Waterloo and IBM’s Zurich Research Laboratory, General Manager of the Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team, and Deputy Director of Strategic Programs at the Infocomm Development Authority, Singapore. Dr Chee’s research interest lies in the interplay between combinatorics and computer science/engineering, particularly combinatorial design theory, coding theory, extremal set systems, and electronic design automation.|
Dr Chee has more than 70 publications in refereed international journals and conferences. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
|1) Combinatorics of Nanotechnology: low-power design, thermal-aware design, crosstalk issues, testing of deep submicron & nanometer-scale circuits, oligonucleotide sequence design for DNA computing, quantum error-correcting codes.
2) Designs, Codes & Cryptography: triple systems, block designs, pairwise balanced designs, group divisible designs, t-designs, Latin squares, error-correcting codes, erasure-resilient codes, codes for nonconventional channels, combinatorial cryptography, algorithms & computational methods, applications in computer science, engineering & biology.
3) Extremal Set Systems: Turan-type problems, packings & coverings, cover-free systems, nonadaptive group testing, applications in computer science, engineering & biology.
