Assoc Prof Ng Keng Meng

Dr. Ng received his BSc and MSc in Mathematics from NUS in 2003 respectively 2005, and his PhD in Mathematics from the Victoria University of Wellington in 2009. From 2009 to 2011 he worked as a Van Vleck Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Research Interests
Dr. Ng's main research interest is in computability theory, a branch of mathematical logic. He is interested in the theory of computation, particularly in descriptive and algorithmic complexity. He works in classical and applied computability theory, and in algorithmic information theory and randomness. He is also interested in reverse mathematics and the application of computability theory to combinatorics and analysis.
