Distinguished Scholar Sharing Series: “The Pleasure of Finding Things Out” and Writing Our Findings Down

Speaker: Professor Professor Yuguo Li
Associate Dean of Engineering in Research, HKU
Department of Mechanical Engineering, HKU
Date: December 22, 2017 (Friday)
Time: 3:00pm-4:30pm
Venue: Engineering DreamLab, Research Student Centre, G/F Haking Wong Building
Organiser: Research Student Centre
Summary: In this sharing session, I shall share my little reflection on the process of learning, and learning/enjoying something new during our research career as well as publishing our findings. I shall attempt to discuss the generic characteristics of the learning that are possibly applicable to everyone and perhaps for everything we learn. Diffusion of any new ideas takes time, and picking up any new ideas is a challenge by itself, and particularly working on new ideas can be both enjoyable but often painful. I particularly suggest that planning ahead and well, and seeking help from your peers and trusted friends can reduce possible pain in such a learning process. I am of the view that a teacher cannot make a student good, as a good student is good by her/himself. We all develop new skills before our “old” ones become really old. To jump to another learning curve is even more challenging. Lastly, I hope that we can discuss together how much frustration and pleasure we can have in getting our work published.
About the Speaker: Dr. Yuguo Li is Professor, Associate Dean of Engineering (Research) and former Head of Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Hong Kong. He studied at Shanghai Jiaotong University, Tsinghua and KTH in Stockholm, and was a Principal Research Scientist at CSIRO. His main research interests are on built environment engineering (indoor air quality, city climate, and environment studies of infection). He led the development of 2009 WHO guidelines on natural ventilation. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of Indoor Air, and President of ISIAQ Academy of Fellows. He received John Rydberg Gold Medal from SCANVAC in 2014, and an Honorary Doctor Degree from Aalborg University, Denmark, 2015 and the Inoue Memorial Award, SHASE, Japan in 2016. He was elected a Fellow of ASHRAE, ISIAQ, HKIE, and IMechE.
