Dr Pang Yang Huei joined SUTD in 2012. Previously, he was teaching at various local schools; this was followed by a stint at the Goh Keng Swee Command and Staff College. His PhD is from NUS, while his MA and BA (Hons) are from NTU (NIE). His education is sponsored by a couple of scholarships and various kinds of bursaries. Having finished one, at the moment, he is working on his second and third book. One examines the role of the PRC at the denouement of the Vietnam War. The other covers East Asia nuclear weapons and energy development.
His other mini projects include an anthology of speeches by a former Singaporean Defense Minister, while another manuscript on Frédéric Joliot-Curie’s Chinese PhD student during WWII constantly beckons. Meanwhile, he has also started inquiries about a certain Hainanese sojourner, Chow Kwai For, in the Transvaal Colony.
