Dr Connie Eng

ICS Senior Process Engineer

School of Physics and Astronomy

My research focuses on the development of nano- and micro-manufacturing techniques for III V semiconductor devices. I am setting up low-volume production lines for III V semiconductor-based devices for optoelectronic and electronic applications.

After graduating with a BEng Electronic and Electrical Engineering from Swansea University, I worked as an Electrical Engineer at Motorola Technoplex, Penang, Malaysia.

I later returned to Swansea University where I obtained my PhD in experimental and numerical studies on electro-osmotic flow-based electronic cooling systems.

My postdoctoral research at Swansea University was involved with inter-disciplinary research in using micro- and nano-fabrication using Centre for NanoHealth clean room facilities, applied to microelectronics applications.

I joined Cardiff University as senior process engineer since Sept 2016. My main role is to work together with both academics and industries to develop advanced manufacturing process for III V semiconductor devices for opto-electronic and electronics applications.
