Vivian Ng

National University of Singapore

Vivian Ng is a professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, National University of Singapore. She obtained her BSc from Imperial College of Science and Technology, University of London and her PhD from University of Cambridge. Her expertise is in nanofabrication techniques and nanosphere lithography, as well as studying nanocrystals/nanomagnets in oxide, thin film magnetism and tunneling devices. Her research achievements include establishing unique methods for quality thin magnetic films with precise control of grain size, alternative ways of large scale patterning, pushing the limits of lithography and characterization of these nanostructures for magnetoresistive effects, domain studies and other spintronics effects.

Dr Ng led major efforts to set up the Information Storage Materials Laboratory and the Nanotechnology Facility in the NUS, one of the first facilities in the NUS with nanostructure fabrication capabilities. She has trained many postgraduate students who are now contributing in industry, academia or research institutes.

Dr Ng is a Member of Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers and a reviewer for several international journals. She has also been actively involved in organization of several international conferences, including INTERMAG and MMM conferences. She also served in IEEE Magnetics Society Education Committee and IEEE Magnetics Administrative Committee. She presently serves on the International Advisory Committee for the International Colloquium for Magnetic Films and Surfaces.

At NUS, she has served in various education and student life related roles at different times including Associate Head for Student Life, Deputy Head for Undergraduate Programmes and Student Life and Vice Dean of Students.

Outside of science and research, Dr Ng is a mother of three girls and enjoys nature and music.
