Prof. Dr. Chong has more than 15 years of experience in academic, research, consultancy and editorial works. He began his Ph. D. research by working in an ARC Linkage project (partners: AWQC, SA Water, Uni of Adelaide, Uni of South Australia) that investigated the feasibility of solar photocatalysis as an AOP for reusing the treated sewage effluents from Bolivar WWTP in South Australia. Shortly before the submission of his Ph. D. thesis, he was employed as a Research Scientist at CSIRO and worked on a number of urban water projects in Southeast Queensland that were funded by the UWSRA. He was a key researcher in the urban water team by leading on a range of urban water research activities, and later becoming a project leader for two CSIRO capability theme projects. After CSIRO, he joined Monash University Malaysia (MUM) as a Senior Lecturer and later being promoted to an Associate Professor. At MUM, he established a number of key and strategic research areas on 'Sustainable Water' and 'Catalysis for Energy Production' where he leads them until today. He has attracted more than RM 2 million in research funding as a PI, and a cumulative amount of more than RM 13 million as both PI and CI from his research career to date. His academic and research portfolio are accoladed with various prizes, awards and fellowships from national and international learned bodies and societies, such as being awarded the prestigious Royal Society of UK Newton Advanced Fellowship, Green Talents Award and others. In a recent ranking study by Stanford University, he is ranked among the World's Top 2% Scientists in his fields of research. Prof. Chong is always open to new research ideas and collaborations, as he believes that these are the key drivers for the creation of new innovations in this modern era.
