BIOGRAPHY:

Prof. L. Q. “Rick” Wang received his PhD from University of Alberta, Canada, and is currently a chair professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the University of Hong Kong (HKU). He also serves as the Director and the Chief Scientist for the Laboratory for Nanofluids and Thermal Engineering at the Zhejiang Institute of Research and Innovation (HKU-ZIRI), the University of Hong Kong. Prof. Wang has 25 years of HKU experience in transport phenomena, materials, nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy & environment, thermal & power engineering, and mathematics, and ~2 years of industry experience in technology and IP development/management/transfer as the Chief Scientist & the Global CTO. In addition to 6 authored scholarly monographs/books, 4 edited scholarly monographs, 5 book chapters, 76 keynote lectures at international conferences and 166 invited lectures in universities/industries/organizations, Prof. Wang has published 489 papers, many of which have been widely used by researchers all over the world and been ranked amongst the top 1% of most-cited scientists according to Clarivate Analytics’ Essential Science Indicator. Prof. Wang has also filed 37 patents/software copyrights, and developed, with an international team consisting of about 100 scientists and engineers, a state-of-the-art thermal control system for the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) on the International Space Station (ISS) that ensures AMS and all its sub-detectors working at their designed temperatures ± 1 ℃ for an environment temperature variation from -40 ℃ to 60 ℃ every 90 minutes.

Prof. Wang’s work has been widely featured by local, national and international media/journals, and received recognition through a number of awards, including the Gold Medal of the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva (2021), the TechConnect Global Innovation Award (2018), the Silver Medal of the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva (2018), the OSA Innovation Award (2017), and the First Outstanding Achievement Award of Hangzhou Oversea Scholars (2016).
