Leong has over 20 years experience in the areas of performance-based fire engineering design for a wide range of building and infrastructure projects.  He has authored over 60 publications in this field and has helped contribute towards fire engineering analytical techniques for performance-based design.  He has a PhD in his two main areas of interests:  fire characterisation and human behaviour in occupant movement – both of which are the key parameters in the determination of life safety in fires.  Leong specialises in the fire safety aspects of large buildings (eg convention centres, multi-level shopping complexes, stadiums, etc), tall buildings, road and rail tunnels, underground stations and airports.  Leong works closely with regulatory authorities including the Building Commission and the Fire Brigades and is presently involved in several technical committees on code development, including the Fire Safety Code for Dubai Civil Defence and the Tunnel Fire Code for Standards Australia.
