He lectures for REHDA GreenRE in Malaysia and Visiting Research Fellow of Universiti Technologi of Malaysia, UTM. He is Visiting Professor at Tianjin University of Technology, China. He is appointed BCA Ambassador and a member of SPRING and SGBC technical committees. He served as Technical Consultant for Ascendas Services Pte Ltd, Bronx Culture Pte Ltd and NIPO Pte Ltd. Dr Shah’ research interest is on nanotechnology and nanomaterials for green building applications. Dr Shah has done outstanding research work on a novel low‐cost high‐volume aqueous silicacoating technique has been granted a US Patent (US 20130196057 A1). His research paper published by Nanoscale (Nanoscale, Impact Factor=6.739, DOI:10.1039/C4NR03306J) on “Noble metal nanoparticles coated with silica by a simple process that does not employ alcohol” was highlighted by popular online science magazines such as ScienceDaily, Physorg and A*STAR website. Separately, Dr Shah’s research on microencapsulated phase change materials enhanced by highly thermal conductive nanowires (Journal of Materials Chem. A, DOI: 10.1039/C3TA14550F, Impact Factor=6.626) led to the development of “M‐KOOL” phase change cooling technology, which was featured on Physorg, Channel News Asia, Straits Times, Business Times, TODAY, The Star Online and Lianhe Wanbao. So far, Dr Shah’s achievements include 3 first‐authored papers, 9 coauthored papers, 1 book chapter, 12 patents disclosures and 1 commercial licensing. Dr Shah has won multiple awards locally and overseas. In 2015, Dr Shah was awarded “IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards 2015” by the Institution of Engineers (IES) Singapore. Again in 2015, Dr Shah was awarded “Young Green Innovator of the Year 2015” under the BCASGBC Green Building Individual Awards at the IGBC Conference. In 2014, Dr Shah’s phase change technology won two awards at Startup Asia 2014 for “Most Promising Idea” and “Most Attractive for Investment” Awards. Again in 2014, Dr Shah Kwok Wei has been selected as top‐5 finalist nomination for The IET Innovation Awards 2014 at London, UK (IET, Institute of Engineering & Technology) selected from over 400 entries from 30 countries. Dr Shah won two “Highly‐ Commended IET Innovation Award” for both “Built Environment” and “Startup” category. For his studies, Dr Shah won the JTC Overseas Undergraduate Scholarship to Tokyo University, and followed by A*STAR Graduate Scholarship for his PhD studies at NUS. Prof Shah will bring along a wealth of industry experience to his new appointment. Dr Shah worked in the building and construction industry as senior electrical engineer in Jurong Consultants Pte Ltd and Jurong Town Corporation JTC. Dr Shah practiced as electrical engineer designing high and lowvoltage systems (LV/HV power systems, lighting systems, security systems, lightning protection systems, standby generators, telecommunication systems) for commercial buildings such as IBM Building Phase 2 in Changi Business Park, Ayer Raja Technopreneur Centre and Tembusu Power Substation etc. Prof Shah is often invited to serve on many public and industry technical committees.
