Prof. Chiang received his first class honours B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of New South Wales, Australia, in 1982 and 1986, respectively. His Ph.D. study was on the development of mathematical methods for the analysis of optical fibres and waveguides. In 1986, he spent six months in the Department of Mathematics, Australian Defence Force Academy, Canberra, where he developed theoretical models for optical fibre fused tapered couplers. From 1986 to 1993, he worked for the Division of Applied Physics (also known as the National Measurement Laboratory), Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia, as a Research Scientist/Senior Research Scientist, where he established a fibre-optics laboratory and initiated research in the areas of optical fibre sensors and nonlinear fibre optics. From 1987 to 1988, he received a Japanese Government Research Award for Foreign Specialist and visited the Electrotechnical Laboratory, Tsukuba, Japan, where he worked on an optical fibre interferometric sensor. From 1992 to 1993, he worked concurrently for the Optical Fibre Technology Centre of the University of Sydney, where he led a project on grating-based fibre sensors. In August 1993, he joined the City University of Hong Kong, where he is currently Chair Professor. In 2000, he was awarded the Croucher Senior Research Fellowship by the Croucher Foundation. He holds five patents and has published over 400 papers in international journals and conference proceedings (including ~40 invited papers) as well as several book chapters. His recent research interests include photonic bandgap waveguides, long-period fibre gratings, long-period waveguide gratings, surface-plasmon-based devices, polymer waveguide devices, microstructured fibres, fibre lasers and sensors, and nonlinear guided-wave optics.

Prof. Chiang is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America. He has served as Programme Leader (1996 - 1999) and Associate Head (2002 - 2004) for the Department. He was a recipient of 2005 K. C. Wong Education Foundation Sponsorship and a Chang Jiang Chair Professor(長江講座教授)of the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (2007 - 2010).

Prof. Chiang is an Associate Editor of IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology and a member of the Advisory Board of Optics Communications.
