Dr Chun Keat Yew

Chun Keat yewChun Keat Yew, Postdoctoral researcher, School of Environment Sciences, University of Hull

Chun Keat Yew is currently a Postdoctoral researcher with the School of Environment Sciences at the University of Hull, United Kingdom. His background is in Electronic Engineering where his PhD research involves Human Movement Nonlinear Vibrational Electromagnetic Energy Harvesting. His current research focus lies with FTIR (Fourier Transform Infra-Red) Spectrometry where he develops data collection, as well as data processing algorithms on board the state-of-the-art ultraportable imaging spectrometer, microFTS. The microFTS is an extremely lightweight (<2kg) spectrometer and capable of capturing high resolution hyperspectral images.

Chun Keat’s current research work involves developing the microFTS to enable detection and identification of biogenic and thermogenic hydrocarbon gasses with colleagues from Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL), UK as well as BP Ltd. UK. Additionally, he is also involved in developing the microFTS to resolve hydrocarbon basin structures through quantitative three-dimensional remote digital compositional characterisation of outcrops. In parallel to these, Chun Keat is also developing an upgraded version of the microFTS hyperspectral imaging spectrometer into an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based monitoring system to monitor natural and anthropogenic hazards. His other passions include Space Science and Badminton.
