Dr Chiang Liang Kok

Biography

In 2010, Chiang Liang received his 1st Class Honours in Bachelor of Electrical & Electronic Engineering in Nanyang Technological University (NTU). In 2010, he received the prestigious Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) Integrated Circuit Design PhD Scholarship to pursue his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Nanyang Technological University (NTU). In 2014, he received his PhD Degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from NTU. His research thesis mainly focuses on power management unit (PMU) for smartphone applications, artificial intelligence sensors, robotics and energy harvesting applications. During the course of his PhD studies, he published several widely recognised journals and conference papers. Furthermore, he was invited to be the undergraduate tutor for analogue and integrated courses in NTU and also the teaching assistant for the prestigious NTU-TUM Master Degree course for 4 consecutive years from 2010 to 2014. In 2014, he joined Mindef DSO National Lab as a senior member of technical staff and implemented many projects on power management and crypto-electronics design. Furthermore, he was invited to be the Adjunct Teaching Professor for Electronic courses in Singapore University of Social Science (SUSS) from 2016 to 2020. In 2020, he was nominated for the prestigious Teaching Excellence Award in SUSS.
