National University of Singapore, Singapore


Research Area:

Nanotechnology and nanomaterials for green building applications


Research Experience:

Prof. Shah Kwok Wei is presently Assistant Professor, and Deputy Program Director under the Dept. of Building, School of Design and Environment, NUS. He is Advisory Board member of Vietnam Green Building Council and sits on VGBC Education Committee. He lectures for REHDA GreenRE in Malaysia and Visiting Fellow of University Technology of Malaysia, UTM. He is Visiting Professor at Tianjin University of Technology, China. He is appointed BCA Ambassador for 3 yrs period and a member of SPRING and SGBC technical committees. He served as Technical Consultant for Ascendas Services Pte Ltd, Chief Technical Advisor for Bronx Culture 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 silica-coating 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 co-authored papers, 1 book chapter, 12 patents disclosures and 1 commercial licensing.

Prof Shah is currently leading a Smart Materials Laboratory in NUS under Dept. of Building DOB, School of Design and Environment SDE, which dedicates research to next generation advanced materials for green building applications. Our focus is leverage on nanomaterials, nanotechnology and biomaterials to develop next generation smart building materials for enhanced properties and high performance such as durability, thermal conductivity, thermal insulation, sound mitigation, self-cleaning and antibacterial capabilities. Our core capabilities include large-scale nanosynthesis, nanofabrication, nanocharaterisation and test-bedding. Our research covers organic and inorganic materials with strong focus on ceramics, nanometals, nanocarbon and polymers.
