(010) (Apr 2021- Mar 2022, Postdoc) Dr. Jason Jiajun Jiang received his BSc in Chemical Technology at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2016, where he carried out his PhD in chiral gold(III) catalysis under supervision of Dr. Man-Kin Wong. In April 2021, before his PhD defence in Jun 2021, he served as a postdoctoral fellow under co-supervision of Dr. Man-Kin Wong and Dr. Franco Leung. His major research interest is the development of photo-controlled drug delivery systems. Jason has left our group on Mar 2022.

Research Assistant

(006) (Aug-Nov 2020, Research Assistant) Mr. Fulin Yao obtained his BSc in Anhui University of Chinese Medicine (2009), and then he finished his Master in Chemistry from Jiangxi Normal University (2013) with focus on polymeric materials synthesis and characterizations. Fulin served as research assistant in Wenzhou Institute of Biomaterials and Engineering (2013-2015), later he became an organic synthesis research fellow in Shanghai ChemPartner (2015-2019) and TCI (2019-2020). After his long journey in commercial companies, in late July 2020, Fulin joined us as a research assistant to strengthen our synthetic capability. Fulin has left our group on Nov 2020.

Undergraduate Student

(004) (Jul-Aug 2020, Student Helper) Mr. Kwok-Chen Yung will receive his higher diploma in Chemical Technology in 2020. He recently joined Dr. Franco Leung Laboratory as a research student helper. Chen is a conscientious and optimistic student with strong motivation to learn more chemistry knowledge. He was working on synthesis and characterization of novel photoresponsive amphiphiles.

(008) (Sept-Dec 2020, FYP) Mr. Yuk-Sing Lo is going to finish his BSc in Chemical Technology in 2021. The degree programme introduced various chemical knowledge from different realms to him. He decided to choose organic synthesis as his final year project's orientation. He is focusing on the synthesis and supramolecular assembling of azobenzene-based amphiphiles in our group. Yuk Sing has left our group on Dec 2020.

(016) (Jan-July 2022, FYP) Miss Charlotte Yan-Yi Lam is studying her BSc in Chemical Technology. Before joining our team as a final year project student, she had served as a summer laboratory assistant in Prof. Pei Li’s research team to carry out bacterial time-kill test studies for CareCoatex antibacterial spray. Charlotte likes to obtain more experimental techniques in organic synthesis. She is now working on the characterisation and synthesis of amphiphilic Donor-Acceptor Stenhouse Adducts (DASAs). Charlotte has left our group on July 2022.
