About Yun Hau Ng

Yun hau Ng is presently a Research Fellow in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Functional Nanomaterials, School of Chemical Engineering,The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia. He started this position since April 2009 to initiate a research on hybrid inorganic-organic nanostructures for solar energy conversion.
Ng graduated his PhD degree in the Research Center for Solar Energy Chemistry, Osaka University, Japan under the sponsorship of MONBUSHO fellowship provided by Ministry of Education Japan. In 2007, he obtained a research grant award for young researcher in environmental energy study. During his PhD study, Ng also successfully received Japan Global Center of Excellence (GCOE) visiting researcher fellowship to the University of Notre Dame in USA. He was working on photocatalytic system which actually harvesting solar light as energy source for chemical energy conversion. His interest lies primarily in the area of delicate nanostructured material synthesis, photoinduced polymerization process and heterogenous catalytic system by photocatalytic approach.
Yun Hau Ng completed his bachelor degree in science (B.Sc) majoring Industrial Chemistry in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia on a PTPTN scholarship offered by Malaysia Higher Education Fund Corporation. He then continued pursuing his master of science (M.Sc (Chemistry)) with the Malaysia National Science Fellowship (NSF)in Ibnu Sina Institute for Fundamental Science Studies (IIS), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.
