Prof. LAU, Denvid
City University of Hong Kong
Speech title: Development of metallic glass composites

Denvid obtained his Bachelor degree with first class honors and Master degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2004 and 2006 respectively, and got his second Master degree from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2009. He then received his Ph.D. in the field of structures and materials from MIT in 2012. Prior to joining the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) as an assistant professor in August 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral associate at MIT. Currently, he is an associate professor with tenure at CityU. His research focuses on the multiscale modeling of organic-inorganic system, moisture-induced debonding, durability of concrete-epoxy system and fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites in structural rehabilitation. To date, Denvid has attracted over HK$10 million fund in total for research and teaching development. He is currently the editorial board member of several international journals including Composites Part B: Engineering, which ranks top 5% in Engineering Multidisciplinary category in ISI. He has published more than 90 referred journal and conference articles and has delivered 30 invited talks, which include plenary and keynote speeches in international conferences, around the world. Recently, Denvid has been nominated and selected as a Founding Member of the Young Academy of Sciences of Hong Kong (YASHK), and has received one of The President's Awards from the CityU, in recognition of his remarkable academic achievement. In addition, Denvid has received the Certificate of Merit for the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) Young Engineer Award 2018 in appreciation of his effort and dedication to the engineering profession, and the Commendation Merit Award - R&D Award of Structural Excellence Award 2018, which is presented by the HKIE (Structural Division). 

 Professor Guo-xing Sun
University of Macau, Macau, China

Speech Title: Application of nanocomposites in construction materials

Dr. Guoxing Sun is a chemist and received his doctoral degree from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology for a work on interaction between organic-inorganic phases in cement/polymer composites in January 2015. During his postdoc phase he extended these activities to cement-released nanoparticles for polymeric nanocomposite enhancement, which has been patented and published on SCI journals such as Nature Communications and Journal of Materials Chemistry A. He had worked in The Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Limited (Hong Kong) as a research engineer from September 2015 to January 2017, and then joined in Institute of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering of University of Macau as an assistant professor, leading a research team composed of 20 PhD students and Postdoc fellows. His current research interests are related to polymer nanocomposites applied for construction and building materials, and some achievements have been commercialized in market.
