BIOGRAPHY


Dr FONG Chng Saun is currently a senior lecturer at the Institute for Advanced Studies, Universiti Malaya. He obtained his Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and Technology from University Putra Malaysia (in 2016). With his excellent academic achievements, he was offered to pursue his doctoral degree at Universiti Malaya. He obtained his PhD in Environmental Science (Urban Ecosystem Management) in the year 2021.

Dr Fong's research interest is in urban ecosystem management with a strong focus on urban heat islands in tropical cities. He is one of the finalists of the first Young Scientists Network-Academy of Sciences Malaysia (YSN-ASM) Chrysalis Award in 2020. He was also listed as the top 100 Scientists of Malaysia in the same year. His core expertise is in environmental science and technology and has centred his research interest in tropical urban heat islands, sustainable development, and other atmospheric-related research such as air pollution monitoring and health impacts.

His expertise also extends to related fields such as continuous monitoring of the environment using automated weather stations and IoT systems; outdoor thermal comfort assessment; heat stress and heat-related illnesses (exposure, risk & health impact); 3D urban microclimate modelling and simulation (impact assessment from urbanization & heat mitigation); air quality (particulate matters PM10 & PM2.5, CO2, SoxNox, PAHs, VOCs); Geographic Information System (GIS); environmental pollution assessment; and, climate resilience & adaptation.

In terms of publications, he has been actively involved in publishing technical research articles, reviews, books and chapters in books on matters related to his field of expertise in various reputable publication journals. He is currently a recurring invited reviewer for high-impact journals such as Science of the Total Environment (STOTEN), Sustainable Cities and Society (SCS), Energy & Buildings, Sustainability, Urban Science, and International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 

He has been involved in research projects such as, “Urban Heat Island Phenomenon in Tropical Cities”, “Evaluating Walkability Index for promoting sustainable transportation in Universiti Malaya Campus” and “Evaluating BTEX in Greater Kuala Lumpur” under collaborative research with the University of Tehran. His current involvement in the research project “NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Respiratory Health (RESPIRE) Air Quality Study: An ecological analysis of asthma health outcomes in Malaysia: A feasibility study” studies the influence of environmental and air quality indicators towards asthma outcomes in Greater Kuala Lumpur.

Besides research work, he is also involved in organizing social engagement events. Apart from the exposure gained through the projects, he is also given the opportunity to extend his networking among various governmental bodies, private sectors, NGOs and researchers from both local and international universities. 

His contribution to the field of atmospheric technology has earned him a spot as a member of the Malaysian Board of Technologists. He is a member of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities for Sustainable Urban Design Working Group in 2020 and Landscape and Human Health Working Group in 2022. He welcomes all forms of collaboration, especially those that are closely linked to the urban’s sustainability and well-being.
