Postdoc

(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 to be a postdoc in Shenzhen.


Research Assistant

(003) (Jul-Aug 2022, Research Assistant; Sept 2021-Jun 2022, FYP; Jul 2020-Aug 2021, Student Helper) Mr. Sean Renshan Guo has received his higher diploma in Chemical Technology in 2020, and he is joining our Laboratory as a research student helper. Sean is a curious and responsible student who want to learn more knowledge. Also, Sean is interested to organic synthesis which inspires him to expand his knowledge. Sean has finished his final year project in the year of 2021/2022. Sean has left our group on Aug 2022 to be a local high school teacher.

(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.

(013) (Aug 2021-Sep 2022, Research Assistant) Mr. Anson Kwok-Hei Chau received his BSc degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2017. He was a research assistant in the Department of Clinical Oncology in the group of Prof. Maria Li Lung (HKU), before commencing his MPhil in Chemistry under the supervision of Dr. Ho-Yu Au Yeung (HKU) with mechanically interlocked molecules as his research focus. To further explore the scope of supramolecular chemistry in biology, he is joining our research group in Aug 2021 as a research assistant, focusing on the development of biocompatible photoresponsive soft materials. Anson finished his works here and left our group on Sep 2022.


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.

(019) (Jun-Aug 2022, Student Helper) Mr. Henry Hung-Ming Chan is pursuing Chemical Technology for his higher diploma. Henry likes Physics and Chemistry since his secondary school life. He is eager to acquire more experimental experience and become an expert in chemistry. In 2022 summer, Henry is joining us to be a research student helper with the research focus on the photoresponsive amphiphiles design and synthesis. Henry has left our group on Aug 2022.
