Stanley Kok is born and bred in Singapore. Upon winning a scholarship from the National Computer Board of Singapore (now GovTech), he gleefully packed his bags to begin his undergraduate education at Brown University, Rhode Island, USA. After spending four wonderful years there (and experiencing enough snow to last him his lifetime), he graduated with honors with a Combined Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) and Bachelor of Arts (Economics) degree. Upon returning to Singapore, he worked as an IT consultant for several years. Realizing that his first love lay in research, he began his graduate studies at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Washington in Seattle. There he worked extensively on Markov logic. After receiving his PhD, he spent a fruitful year as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, investigating problems on large-scale data integration and social network analysis. Thereafter, he joined Singapore University of Technology and Design as a faculty member. With an eye on translating his research into useful commercial products, Stanley took up an industry position of Principal Research Scientist at Rakuten Institute of Technology. In July 2018, Stanley joined the Department of Information Systems and Analytics (National University of Singapore) as an assistant professor, using his industry experience to better frame his research. Stanley's research interests are in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and their applications.
