Professor Ong received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees and his doctorate in electrical engineering from the University of Kentucky.


Ong’s research centers around implantable sensors, wireless sensors, electronic devices, and magneto-elastic materials. He was involved in the development and implementation of a number of wireless sensor technologies including magneto-elastic resonant sensors and inductive-capacitive resonant circuit sensors for biomedical applications. Currently, Ong focuses on the development of “smart implants”, which are based on wireless sensor/actuator platforms that not only can monitor physiological conditions in real time, but also react and adapt to changes for improving treatment outcomes.
