Apart from lecturing Statistics and Econometrics at FEA, he had also been invited to teach International Finance and Financial Econometrics at both the Faculty and Graduate School of Business (GSB), University of Malaya between 2009 and 2010. From Sept 2012 to May 2013, he was a Visiting Scholar at the Risk Management Institute, National University of Singapore (NUS), where he was a member of the research group in dynamics of credit rating. He also attended the Executive Education Program in Portfolio Management, Asset Allocation and Behavioral Finance conducted by Professor Burton Malkiel, Professor Yacine Ait-Shalia and colleagues at the Bendheim Center for Finance, Princeton University in June 2013. He has been invited to contribute to Malaysia's Business Optimism Index (BOI) Study by Dun & Bradstreet in 2014-15 and authoring a professional text for the Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII) in 2015. Dr Lau has published articles in the area of asset allocation, portfolio management, equity style and futures market. His earlier work establishes the relationship between equity style and fund performance (MF, 2007). His recent work establishes the existence of economic content and information transmission in equity style indices which are useful as leading economic indicators (Ekonomie a Management, 2015). His recent work has been presented in the Malaysian Statistics Conference, BNM Economics Research Workshop and the ISBIS Conference in Barcelona.  To date, 6 of his PhD students have graduated and 17 of his Master students have completed their research papers.

DR. CHONG PAN PAN

Dr Chong Pan Pan is highly qualified with B.Sc. (Hons) Microbiology (2001), M.Sc. Biochemistry (2004) and successfully completed PhD (2013) on her research on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and skeletal tissue engineering. After that she works as post-doctoral research fellow (2013-2016) at the National Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence in Research and Learning (NOCERAL), Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya (UM), Malaysia. Currently, she is the senior lecturer in NOCERAL, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, UM. Additionally, she is the person in charge to set up the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Laboratory in NOCERAL. She has also been put in charge of the newly proposed clinical study, entitled the use of staged intra-articular injection of cultured autologous mesenchymal stromal cells following marrow stimulation of the repair of focal articular cartilage defects. This involves running Phase I & II clinical trials of the completely built up in house technology. Her research interest involves the current and innovative area of tissue engineering and manipulation of adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for future use as biological therapies for poorly regenerating tissues. Her work focuses on driving the adult MSCs from bone marrow, peripheral blood and adipose tissue along chondrogenic lineages for later transplantation to replace worn out joint cartilage in patients suffering from joint disorders, including trauma or osteoarthritis. To attest her work, Dr. Chong has published in several quality (Q1/high impact factor) peer reviewed journals and presented her works extensively and globally at numerous international level conferences. At that time, she has also won a number of awards, including top prizes at the regional level, such as Young Investigator Awards, L’Oréal Malaysia for Women in Science, Best Poster/Oral Presentations and travel fellowships etc. In addition, she has participated in several biotechnology exhibitions and won many innovation awards for her work on MSCs as biological therapies for tissue regenerations. She has also developed intellectual property related to these novel works which has been successfully patented.
