Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, Malaysia


Dr Ng works in a wide range of interdisciplinary experimental and computational projects, including chemical kinetics modelling of diesel/biodiesel combustion, biofuels production and combustion, engine testing, parallel processing and neural network analysis of engine performance/emissions, as well soil remediation using extraction and advanced oxidation processes (AOP). He has well over 80 publications to date in internationally refereed journals, conference proceedings, book chapters and books. He also serves on the editorial board of seven international journals, and have been appointed to various advisory panels and expert committees.  He has led a number of projects which are funded from a variety of sources including government organisations, industry and university. Dr Ng has also established various collaborations with both industrial and academic partners from a number of countries in Europe and Asia. Dr Ng was recently the winner of the inaugural 2012 Chancellor’s Award

Research Interest

Expertise in experimental research includes performance/emissions mappings of biofuel in
various combustion systems, evaluation of biodiesel properties on materials
compatibility/engine durability, effects of additives on the efficiency of combustion systems,
in-cylinder soot transport/morphology and novel biofuel production techniques from various
feedstock. I am also involved in experimental projects to determine the effects of polycyclic
aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) emissions to the environment and the corresponding
remediation strategies, especially on contaminated soils.
