- Fellowship in 2002 at the University of Cambridge
Chris Mak received her B.Sc. (1999) and Ph.D. (2002) degrees in Chemistry from the City University of Hong Kong, where she worked on spectroscopy of lanthanide ions in high symmetry lattices in the group of Prof. Peter A. Tanner. In 2002, she was awarded a Croucher Foundation Research Fellowship to study the use of electrofluorescent and electrophosphorescent materials in OLED display at the University of Cambridge in the laboratories of Prof. Andrew B. Holmes. Upon her return to Hong Kong, she took up a postdoctoral position in the research group of Prof. Wai Kin Chan in 2005, and later on as a research assistant professor at the University of Hong Kong with research interests encompass polymer chemistry, design and synthesis of electroactive and nano-materials and device fabrications, for the applications of organic light emitting diodes and organic solar cells.
