Dr. Chin Vun Jack is an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In 2013, he graduated amongst the top of his cohort with bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering with first-class honours in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. He was the recipient of the university’s Vice Chancellor's Award. Subsequently, he was awarded a PhD at University Teknologi Malaysia for his contribution in developing advanced soft-computing based techniques for the performance characterization of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. In 2018, he joined Centre of Electrical Energy Systems (CEES) as a postdoctoral research fellow, where he actively published on novel techniques to enhance the computation models for solar PV systems. Amongst which, his work was adopted for rapid simulation of partially shaded PV arrays and was featured in PV Magazine.

Dr. Chin has recently been awarded the Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS) on the application of advanced machine learning technique on the diagnosis and quantification of concurrent faults in PV systems. He is also part of the research team on autonomous drone navigation funded by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) grant. In addition, he serves as an active reviewer for reputable journals from IEEE, IET, and Elsevier. 
At UoSM, Dr. Chin delivers several courses, including Control Systems and Communications, Power Electronics and Drives, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Design, and Power Circuits and Transmission. His latest research interests include the optimization of renewable energy systems, and the application of machine learning techniques for the parameter identification, fault diagnosis and performance optimization of solar PV systems.
