My Story

I graduated as a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering (Building Service Stream) student at The Hong Kong University (HKU) in the year 2011. Then, I went to The University of New South Wales (UNSW) to continue my study and acquired my PhD degree supervised by Prof Guan Heng, YEOH in Mechanical Engineering in the year 2015. 


I started my academic career as a Research Associate at UNSW in 2015 working on large-scale fire simulation studies including bushfires, building and tunnel fires revolving around Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques. After that, I started my role as the Centre Manager of the national theme-based ARC Training Centre for Fire Retardant Materials and Safety Technologies in 2018-23, managing the daily operation of the UNSW Fire Testing Laboratory and ensuring the timely completion of industry and partner projects. I was appointed as an academic staff in 2021 as a Lecturer at UNSW, specialising in the development of advanced bio-inspired functional materials with experimental characterisations combined with unique computational realisation techniques. Since Jan 2023, I joined The Hong Kong Polytechnic University as an Assistant Professor (Presidential Young Scholar) to continue my journey as an acdemic researcher.

I research on the development of computational material science modelling techniques to deliver in-depth characterisations of the atomistic physiochemical behaviours of nanocomposites such as interfacial and surface science reactions between molecules. In addition, he also contributes to the fabrication of novel, bio-inspired and multifunctional nano-architectured composite materials. I aim to synergise my expertise to formulate a systematic, state-of-the-art fire assessment platform to effectively and physically describe the flaming and degradation processes, thermal/electrical conductivities, charring and self-extinction behaviours of advanced materials.
