Anderson Shum's Biography

Anderson Shum, Associate Professor, University of Hong Kong

Dr. Anderson Ho Cheung Shum received his B.S.E. degree (summa cum laude) in chemical engineering from Princeton University, S.M. and Ph.D. in applied physics from Harvard University. He is currently an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at HKU. His research interests include microfluidics, microscaled fluid flows, emulsion-templated materials and soft matter. He was admitted to the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) as a Fellow (FRSC), nominated by HK for the 2017 APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE Prize), and received the Early Career Award by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong in 2012. He is current an editorial board member for Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group) and an editorial advisory board member for Biomicrofluidics (American Institute of Physics (AIP)) and Lab-on-a-Chip (RSC). He is also a reviewer for over 80 international journals including Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Communications and PNAS.

Interfacial phenomena are ubiquitous in both natural systems and technologies. In this talk, I will discuss interfaces formed between two immiscible aqueous liquids. Since molecules can diffuse through these interfaces relatively easily, massive diffusion can happen across them. Together with the control provided by microfluidic devices, interfacial phenomena induced by diffusion can be systematically investigated. I will demonstrate how control of osmotic diffusion enables manipulation of emulsion droplet morphology as well as polyelectrolyte particles and capsules. These diffusion-controlled formation processes should also be applicable in more macroscopic, non-microfluidic settings, and hence have great potential to fabricate new encapsulating structures.
