Kok Boon Chong

Assistant Professor


Dr. Kok Boon Chong his done  2007, Ph.D in  Condensed Matter and Materials Physics, Queen Mary University of London, UK and 2001, B.Sc (Hons), Physics, National University of Malaysia, Malaysia. He has published more than 25 articles.


Area of Interest

1) Mechanistic understanding of deformation and transformation in metals and oxide, i.e phase transition and transformation, creep, corrosion
2) The origin of residual stress and the effect of residual stresses on these those mechanisms.microstructure-properties study, in both theoretical modelling and experimental for associate problems.
