Biography

Dr. Victor Bong graduated with first class honors in Mechanical Engineering from Swinburne University of Technology in 2011. He was the Project Engineer of a local engineering startup specializing in various water treatment systems and processes, surface coating technologies, and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessments prior to pursuing his postgraduate studies. He was conferred PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Swinburne University of Technology with his thesis entitled “Fundamental Study of Heat Transport by Phonons and Electrons in Semiconductors at Micro and Nanoscale” in 2017, following which he joined the university as a Research Fellow and Lecturer. His research interests include nanoscale heat conduction, Building Information Modelling, sustainable built environment, and heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR).
