Ms Elaine Chong completed her Bachelor Degree in geography and mathematics at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2003. Afterward, she studied at Singapore’s National Institute of Education (NIE) for a Postgraduate Diploma in secondary school level teaching where she taught at a secondary school in Singapore from 2004 to 2007. She left teaching to volunteer full time at the Tsunami Volunteer Centre in Khao Lak, Thailand, to assist with the tsunami rebuilding efforts. There she managed the entire volunteer program for a year. When she felt that work was finalised, she returned to Singapore in 2008 and worked with the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) where she reviewed the volunteer management system and organised high level events. Subsequently, she joined the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) in 2010 where she managed the EOS outreach programs and worked on establishing and maintaining networks with various stakeholders to support the effective dissemination of EOS scientific discoveries. She also coordinated local and international field trips, workshops, meetings, events, and liaisons.

In January 2013, Elaine joined the AIT DPMM program, motivated to help people and to resolve the lack of communication that she had previously observed between scientists and communities at risk. She strives to learn to apply effective measures to reduce the multi-hazard risks that communities face today.
