Jenny Wong-Leung is currently a senior fellow in the department of Electronic Materials Engineering. She first obtained a bachelor of science in Physics with honours at the University of Bristol in UK in 1991 and then completed a PhD degree at the Australian National University in 1997. She held an ARC postdoctoral fellowship (1998-2001) on implantation induced defects in silicon and also an ARC QEII fellowship (2002-2007) based on “Ion implantation in Silicon Carbide for microelectronics applications”. Her broad research interests are in the structural and electrical characterisation of semiconductors. She specialises in electron microscopy of semiconductor structures, defect characterisation in ion implanted semiconductors, as grown semiconductor heterostructures and nanostructures. Most recently she is passionate about using electron microscopy characterisation to improve growth and fabrication of semiconductor nanowires and other nanostructures. Her research projects are hinged on a range of characterisation and fabrication techniques to optimise performance and understand the underlying physics. She has over 100 journal publications and a H-index of 26 (web of science) and 30 (google scholar).(Updated November2016)
