K. H. (KOKO) Lam

Dr. Lam received the M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees in Applied Physics from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HKPolyU). During his graduate studies, he worked on the processing and characterization of piezoelectric materials and their applications in sensors and actuators. Dr. Lam was a visiting scholar in Stanford University in 2007. From 2007 to 2009, he acquired the HKPolyU-funded Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and worked on the applications of smart materials in civil engineering structures at HKPolyU. Meanwhile, he also joined an international project (collaborated with Stanford University, University of Michigan, and Georgia Institute of Technology) to conduct wireless vibration monitoring of Guangzhou Television and Sightseeing Tower in China. Dr. Lam became a Research Associate at the NIH Resource Center on Medical Ultrasonic Transducer Technology in the Department of Biomedical Engineering of University of Southern California (USC) from 2011 to 2013. Dr. Lam started his academic career as an Assistant Professor in Department of Electrical Engineering at HKPolyU in 2013.

​Dr. Lam has been working in the field of smart materials and applications including multifunctional smart materials, energy materials, smart sensor and actuator technology, ultrasound transducer technology, condition and structural health monitoring, biomedical and non-destructive applications of ultrasonic transducers.
