About

Overview

Professor Tong Sun was awarded the degrees of Bachelor of Engineering, Master of Engineering and Doctor of Engineering from the Department of Precision Instrumentation of Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China in 1990, 1993 and 1998 respectively. She was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at City University in applied physics in 1999 and was an Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore from year 2000 to 2001 before she re-joined City University in 2001 as a Lecturer. Subsequently she was promoted to a Senior Lecturer in 2003, a Reader in 2006 and a Professor in 2008 at City University, London.

Prof. Sun is currently the Director of Research Centre of Sensors and Instrumentation and is leading a research team focused on developing a range of optical fibre sensors for a variety of industrial applications, including structural condition monitoring, early fire detection, homeland security, process monitoring, food quality and environmental monitoring. She has been working closely with partners across disciplines from academia and industry, both in the UK and overseas.

Prof. Sun is a member of the Institute of Physics and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and a Chartered Physicist and a Chartered Engineer in the United Kingdom. She has authored or co-authored some 230 scientific and technical papers.
