Biography
Dr Teo Chee Chong joined the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2006. He received his B.Eng (Mechanical) from the Nanyang Technological University and PhD in Manufacturing Systems & Technologies under the Singapore-MIT Alliance program, which is an education and research collaboration between NUS (Singapore), NTU (Singapore) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Dr Teo’s current research interest is in the application of operations research to solve problems in supply chain, production and service operations. His research projects emphasize on industry application. He had worked on research projects with companies such as Keppel Offshore and Marines (Singapore), DHL Supply Chain, Neptune Orient Lines and Dell Inc. (North America). His research has been published in major operations management journals such as Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Production & Operations Management, European Journal of Operational Research, IIE Transactions and International Journal of Production Economics. At NTU, he teaches supply chain and logistics courses at both bachelor and master levels. Courses that he had taught include Intermodal Transportation, Distribution & Warehousing, Shipping Logistics and Quantitative Methods in Logistical Analysis.
