  • Innovation Award in 2016 at The University of Hong Kong
  • Fellowship in 2010 at University of California, Berkeley
  • Scholarship in 2006 at University of Cambridge

Ho Yu Au-Yeung obtained his BSc and MPhil degrees in Chemistry from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. After graduation, he studied for a PhD in the group of Prof. Jeremy K. M. Sanders at the University of Cambridge, UK as a Croucher Scholar. He then joined the group of Christopher J. Chang at University of California, Berkeley as a Croucher Postdoctoral Fellow.


He moved back to Hong Kong in 2013 and is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Hong Kong. Current research work in his group lies in the area of supramolecular chemistry and molecular recognition, with emphases on the self-assembly of complex interlocked molecules and their applications in material science, as well as the development of bioimaging agents/probes for the study of the chemical biology of small organic biomolecules.
