Anderson Shum's Biography

Anderson Shum, Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering; Assistant Dean, Faculty of Engineering, 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 a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at HKU and Assistant Dean in the Faculty of Engineering. 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.
