Professor Anderson Shum of the Department of Mechanical Engineering received Senior Research Fellowship 2020 by the Croucher Foundation. Professor Shum is internationally recognised for his works in microfluidics and soft matters, particularly on his pioneering contributions in combining all-aqueous formulations and droplet microfluidics. His research focuses on the engineering of aqueous droplet interfaces for designing new bio- and cyto-compatible materials. His research focuses on the engineering of aqueous droplet interfaces for designing new bio- and cyto-compatible materials. His team has pioneered the generation and control of allaqueous emulsion drops using microfluidic techniques, and demonstrated their ability to encapsulate delicate active biomolecules and to mimic complex biological droplets. When combined with microfluidic droplet manipulation techniques, designer biomaterials with excellent compatibility can be assembled for precision delivery of tunable quantities of active ingredients. He has over 110 peer-reviewed publications and his research interests include emulsions, biomicrofluidics, biomedical engineering and soft matters.
