Nanyang Assistant Professor, School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Asst Prof Chang Wonkeun

Dr Wonkeun Chang received the BTech in Optoelectronics and MSc in Physics from the University of Auckland, and subsequently his PhD in Physics from the Australian National University. He then joined the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, where he developed expertise in ultrafast light-matter interactions in hollow waveguides. In 2013, Dr Chang was granted a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award from the Australian Research Council, and led a project on complex pulse dynamics and extreme events in ultrafast laser systems at the Australian National University. He is currently a Nanyang Assistant Professor at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Nanyang Technological University. His research interests are in specialty optical fibres, novel light source development and femtosecond laser systems.
