- Fellowship in 1999 at University of Oxford
Dr. Wong graduated with a BSc(Hons) in Chemistry from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1996, and received a PhD from the same university in 1999. He was then awarded the Croucher Fellowship to start his postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford (Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory). Two years later, he was offered another prestigious award, the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship, to further his postdoctoral experiences in Germany. Owing to family reason, Dr. Wong declined the offer and returned to Hong Kong in 2002 taking up a position as Chemist in the Government Laboratory HKSAR. He is now Senior Chemist. Dr. Wong is also a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC) and has obtained a number of professional qualifications including Chartered Chemist (CChem), Chartered Scientist (CSci) and European Chemist (EurChem). His academic research experiences focused on the design and synthesis of polydentate N, O and S donor ligands, modeling of metal-containing enzymes via small molecules, catalytic and mechanistic studies of targeting compounds. His current research interests include development of methodologies for the determination of challenging chemical compounds at trace / ultra-trace levels using advanced instrumentation techniques, and demonstration and promotion of metrology in chemistry.
