Mr Choo Fook Hoong

Professor Choo graduated from the University of Leeds and The University of Manchester (UMIST), UK. He worked in the drives and automation industries in UK in the early 80s before joining NTI in 1984.

He is currently an Associate Professor in the Division of Power Engineering, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, College of Engineering, NTU.

He is the Principal Investigator of the NRF-CRP project entitled:

Combined-cycle Solar Energy Self-sustaining Membrane Distillation (MD) and Membrane Distillation Bioreactor (MDBR) Water Production and Recycling System

He manages the Water and Energy Research Lab which conducts research on solar energy harnessing for water processing, micro-grid and intelligent metering systems.

He has published numerous papers in control, power electronics, electrical drives and robotics. He has acted as consultants to numerous local companies and MNCs in energy and electrical systems issues. He is Chartered Engineer and a Certified Energy Manager (CEM).
