Chan Kwong Yu

  • Senior Research Fellowship in 2010 at The University of Hong Kong
Professor Chan Kwong Yu is an expert on fuel cells and the molecular simulation of electrochemical Interfaces. His inventions in relation to ozone generation, fuel cells and batteries have been licensed for commercial development. 


Electrochemistry takes place at an interface and involves processes at multiple phases and length scales, demanding integration of knowledge and disciplines. Professor Chan is interested in structuring composite materials at multiple-length scales to optimise the interfacial phenomena that take place in these applications which include fuel cells, batteries, capacitors, ozone generation, green oxidation, waste degradation, and sensing. Modeling techniques such as Molecular Simulation will be needed to complement interpretation and understanding of the experimental investigations.
