Ang worked with Dr. Shikha Prasad as part of the Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI) to investigate the possibility of using the coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CEvNS) detector to monitor areas where inspectors are not allowed entry. Ang graduated with a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University in May 2022. He also earned a graduate certificate in nuclear security. During his time at NSSPI he joined the Safeguards Education Experience (SEE) Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Nuclear Safeguards Training Course, where he learned various detection techniques for safeguards purposes from nuclear experts. Prior to joining NSSPI, Ang earned a Master of Science degree in Nuclear Power Plant Engineering from the KEPCO International Nuclear Graduate School in South Korea, a Master of Science in Quality and Productivity Improvement from the National University of Malaysia, and a Bachelor of Science in Physics from the National University of Malaysia. He is currently working as a science officer in the Atomic Energy Licensing Board in Malaysia.
