We build the publications from HKU and external sources automatically. If you do not see your publications here, please note:
  • We receive data from HKU's Research Output System (ROS), after you or your people enter data there. If you have entered, or are going to enter data into ROS, we do not want to enter them manually into the Hub, as it will create duplicates. When entering data into ROS, please remember to include the DOI or ISBN. It will help us match on outside sources, and dedup.
  • If you are NOT going to enter publication data into ROS, or if you have publications from before your time at HKU, please put them into an EndNote file and send to us, hub@lib.hku.hk. It will allow us to enter in batch. HKU has a site license for EndNote. You may google for "endnote@hk". HKU Libraries can instruct on Endnote, either in class or one on one, http://lib.hku.hk/general/help.html
  • You may log into your ResearcherPage with your HKU Portal, and use the "Manage Publications" entry on the green left side menu, to unlink publications from your ResearcherPage, or, select a few to appear in a new box, "Selected Publications".
  • Confused? Please write to hub@lib.hku.hk.

     Biography

    Albert is a professional engineer specialized in artificial intelligence and robotic systems. His research interest includes robot-assisted search and rescue systems, emergency engineering, appropriate technologies for humanitarian relief, and emergency water and sanitation systems

    Outside of the laboratory, Albert is an experienced humanitarian relief worker. He was the first Hong Kong engineer to join Medecins Sans Frontiers’ field missions since 2000. He volunteered in South Sudan during the civil war, Uzbekistan during 911, Indonesia during the South Asia Tsunami, Pakistan during the Kashmir earthquake, and Sichuan during the Wenchuan earthquake. Albert also served as board members and advisors for major international relief organizations, including MSF and Red Cross. Throughout his career, Albert travelled to over 100 cities in 25 countries.

    In 2006, he cycled 2000 km alone across the Qinghai-Tibet plateau to raise $200,000 for an international relief organization. Prior to the Sichuan Earthquake, Albert organized the first “Emergency Engineering” course in 2006 with HK Institution of Engineers to prepare young engineers for demanding emergency relief operations. Some of the participants later contributed to the relief work in Sichuan. “Advanced Emergency Engineering” was organized the following year.

    Albert is keen in promoting volunteerism and global citizenship to younger generations. He joined CEDARS in 2009 and shared his extensive NGO network and relief experience to support service learning in HKU. He is concurrently serving as the Head of Student Development Programme in CEDARS.

    His awards include Ten Outstanding Young Persons Award (2007), Young Engineer of the Year Grand Award (HK Institution of Engineers, 2008), Humanity Award (HK Red Cross, 2008), Outstanding Volunteer Awards (Agency for Volunteer Services, 2008) and Hong Kong Spirit Ambassadors (2010).
