A Cooling Solution with Zero Electricity Consumption
Dr Edwin Chi Yan Tso studies new model of passive cooling
Heat and humidity in places like Hong Kong have made space cooling essential to every household. Refrigeration, space cooling and heating account for more than 38% of energy consumption in commercial buildings in Hong Kong, compared to about 20% in the United States. By modeling natural phenomena such as frost, Tso and his team have created an environmentally friendly device using a passive radiative cooling technique that can cool down indoor space without using electricity...

Dr Hei-Man Chow Awarded a 3-Year Research Fellowship
Chow was awarded a research fellowship sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association, for a 3-year project to study the molecular mechanisms on Alzheimer's disease. Her research finding will extend to evaluate how conventional anti-diabetic drugs may prevent neuronal dysfunction in early stage of the disease.
