About MeAbout my ResearchSome of My PublicationsHow to contact me

See-Kiong Ng (Ph.D., Carnegie Mellon University), a recipient of the prestigious Singapore National Computer Board's (now the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, or IDA) overseas scholarship (1986), is currently the Programme Director of the Urban Systems Initiative by the Science and Engineering Research Council of the Agency of Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The Initiative seeks to address the new challenges of the rapidly urbanising world through technology and innovations. See-Kiong is also the founding Center Director of the Business Analytics Translational Center (BATC), a cross-agency collaboration by A*STAR and IDA to catalyze innovation, perform technology translation, and drive adoption of business analytics in Singapore. In addition, he holds a concurrent appointment as a Principal Scientist and the Advisor to the Data Analytics Department that he has founded in 2005 at A*STAR's Institute for Infocomm Research. The department has since become one of the leading groups in data mining research, with possibly the largest number of data scientists locally. See-Kiong is also an Associate Professor at the new Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

See-Kiong's diverse and cross-disciplinary research interests include Bioinformatics, Text Mining, Social Network Mining, and Privacy-Preserving Data Mining. His primary resesearch objective is to unravel the underlying functional mechanisms of protein interaction networks as well as other real-world networks in order to understand the "biology" of complex systems through computational technologies and data-driven approaches. In fact, See-Kiong has recently expanded his scientific work from understanding the biology of the human body to understanding the biology of the human cities. He is now focusing on addressing the new challenges of the rapidly urbanising world through developing technologies and innovations in information and communications for big data, complexity, and intelligence to connect people, policy, and environment in future smart cities.
