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 Professor in Practice at the School of Computing, National University of Singapore, and Director, Translational Reserach for the university's new Institute of Data Science.

See-Kiong was 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 for smart cities.

See-Kiong also held a concurrent appointment as Director of Strategic Alliances at A*STAR's Institute for Infocomm Research. He was also a Principal Scientist and the Advisor to the Data Analytics Department that he founded in 2005. The department has since become a prominent leader in applied data mining research, with possibly the largest number of data scientists locally.

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 dynamic real-world networks—from protein interaction networks to social networks—in order to understand the "biology" of complex systems through computational technologies and data-driven approaches. In the past few years, See-Kiong has expanded his scientific work from understanding the biology of the human body (bioinformatics) to understanding the biology of the human cities (smart cities). He is now focusing on developing technologies and innovations in information and communications for big data, complexity, and intelligence to connect people, policy, and environment in future smart cities in order to address the new challenges of the rapidly urbanising world.
