Dr. Ricky Tjeung
Phone: 03 9902 9659
Ricky received his Bachelor and Master of Engineering degrees from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He completed his Ph.D at Monash University, focusing primarily on the development of surface acoustics wave based micro actuators.
Prior to pursuing his doctoral degree in Australia, Ricky gained experienced at NTU, Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology - A*STAR and Avago Technologies. His past responsibilities ranged from development and performance characterisation of novel micro devices, to maintenance and optimisation of a manufacturing production line.
Ricky brings considerable microfabrication and characterisation expertises to the MCN. He is responsible for photolithography, physical vapour deposition, chemical vapor deposition and reactive ion etching processes. He is particularly interested in the areas of MEMS, micro actuators, microfluidics, thin film technology and heat management.
If Ricky were to have a super-power, he’d want it to be invisibility so that he could fall completely off the radar on weekends and indulge his passion for reading and seeing the latest movies. It would also come in handy for another favourite pasttime - playing badminton. We can see the movie posters already - “you won’t believe where he strikes from next!”
