Prof Da-Hsuan Feng appointed Senior Fellow of Nanyang Technological University‘s Institute of Advanced Studies
Prof Da-Hsuan Feng, director of global affairs and special advisor to the rector at the University of Macau (UM), has been appointed Senior Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU). This is the highest honour conferred by the institute.
The NTU-IAS was founded in 2005. Two institutes, the Institute for Advanced Study in the city of Princeton and the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI) at the University of Copenhagen, can be considered the role models of the NTU-IAS. The institute brings together Nobel laureates and other eminent scientists from around the world so that faculty members and students at the university can broaden their horizons and enhance their research capabilities by learning from leading scientists in different fields.
Prof Feng has accumulated three decades of academic and corporate experience in the United States, where he built a broad and strong global network. He was M Russell Wehr Chair Professor of Physics at Drexel University in Philadelphia, director of the Division of Theoretical Physics of the United States National Science Foundation, vice president of the University of Texas at Dallas, and vice president of the Fortune 500 Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). In the past nine years in Asia, besides his job at UM, Prof Feng also served as a senior vice president of two top universities in Taiwan, namely Cheng Kung University and Tsing Hua University, where he was deeply involved in creating a dialogue for university autonomy. In addition, Prof Feng put a lot of effort in promoting intellectual collaborations between Taiwan and mainland China, most notably the collaboration between Tsinghua University in Beijing and Tsing Hua University in Taiwan, and the exchange of Minnan culture between the southern part of Taiwan and Xiamen city in mainland China. He also proactively engaged with academic institutions in India and Europe, and has lectured at nearly all corners of Asia Pacific and South Asia.
