Biography

Dr. Edwin Koh is a senior lecturer at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). He serves on the review committee of the United States National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Grand Challenges Scholars Program (GCSP) and is a Principal Investigator at the Singapore-ETH Centre (Future Resilient Systems). He is the founding chair of the International Conference on Advanced Design Research and Education and has held positions as a faculty member at the National University of Singapore (Innovation & Design Programme) and a visiting scholar at the New York University (Department of Technology Management and Innovation).

Edwin’s research focuses on the design of engineering products and systems, with an emphasis on managing complexity and enhancing creativity. His work appears in journals such as Research in Engineering Design, Journal of Engineering Design, and Design Studies.

Edwin received his B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering and S.M. in Manufacturing from the Nanyang Technological University. He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as part of his master’s studies and holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Design from the University of Cambridge.
