Chong Chi Tat is University Professor and Director of the Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of Singapore (NUS). His research interests are in the areas of recursion/computability theory.[1]

Academic career[edit]

Professor Chong received his BSc (with distinction) from Iowa State University and his PhD from Yale University. He began his career in NUS as a Lecturer in 1974. He was subsequently promoted to Senior Lecturer (1980–1985), Associate Professor (1985–1989) and Professor (1989–2004). Professor Chong held many administrative leadership positions including Vice Dean of Science (1985–1996); Head, Department of Information Systems and Computer Science (1993–1996); Deputy Vice Chancellor, Deputy President and Provost (1996–2004); and Head, Department of Mathematics (2006–2012). In 2004, Professor Chong was named the second University Professor of NUS, the highest honor bestowed upon a very small number of its tenured faculty members.[2]
