Biography

Kenny received his Ph.D. degree in School of Computing, National University of Singapore in 2008. His Ph.D. thesis focused on regular expression type systems and compiler extensions.

In 2009, Kenny joined Circos Brand Karma, a Singapore-based SME building a social media analytics application. Kenny and his software engineering team developed a SaaS analytics product for the hospitality. His team was one of the early adopters of Hadoop and cloud computing.

In 2012 – 2020, Kenny worked in Nanyang Polytechnic, School of IT as a senior lecturer, teaching various subjects related to programming, web development, big data analytics and artificial intelligence.

During the same period, Kenny held several adjunct faculty positions in overseas universities, such as University of Glasgow and Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences. As an adjunct faculty member, Kenny was in charge of teaching the fourth year and master level subjects such as compiler design, formal semantics and functional programming.

Kenny’s research interest is in software design, compiler design, type system, regular expression, automata theory and program analysis.

Besides research and teaching, Kenny loves to play with IoT devices and robots, which is not part of his research interest. Kenny has three kids and has been busy with his family besides his work and tech interest.

Before getting busy with kids, he used to play badminton, sing and play music instruments when he was free.
