Personal profile


Dr Wong Siew Fang assumed the role of a research fellow at Monash University Malaysia in August 2023. With a solid academic background, Dr Wong holds a B.Sc. degree (First Class Honors) in Resource Chemistry from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). He pursued his M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and Universiti Malaya (UM), respectively.

During his M.Sc. studies, Dr Wong concentrated on the synthesis mechanisms and catalytic applications of nanoporous zeolite materials, mentored by Associate Professor Dr Ng Eng Poh. He also gained valuable international research experience through a three-month research attachment at Suranaree University of Technology in Thailand, collaborating closely with Associate Professor Dr Jatuporn Wittayakun.

For his Ph.D., Dr Wong conducted groundbreaking research in the field of differential-based optical biosensor arrays, guided by Associate Professor Dr Khor Sook Mei. His work aimed to detect, differentiate, and quantify various carcinogenic food contaminants in real food samples. Dr Wong's research interests span across Analytical Chemistry, Bioanalytical Chemistry, Food Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, and Synthetic Chemistry, with a strong expertise in (bio)sensor array development and its application across various research domains.
