Long-Yin Lo

M.Phil. student

Research directions:     Automation and non-destructive evaluation

Long-Yin Lo received his B.Eng. degree in Electrical Engineering from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) in 2019. After graduated, he participated in the developments of an inspection robot for generator and a train monitoring system as a research assistant for two years. These experiences brought him into the engineering design and application field. He is currently developing an in-pipe ultrasonic inspection robots.

Research direction:     Flexible thermoelectric generators

Shuping LIN received her M.Eng. degree majored in Chemical Engineering from Sun Yat-Sen University in 2015, and B.Sc. degree specialized in Applied Chemistry from Jiaying University in 2013, respectively. During her previous research studies, she focused on nano-MOF (metal organic frameworks) materials as the novel efficient adsorbent in sewage treatment, large scale micro-MOF film for proton conducting, and ligand displace route to MOF nanorods fabrication. She studied the mechanism of nano-MOFs for dye adsorption and transformation between MOF pellets and nanorods. In her Ph.D. programme, her research interest orients to flexible, wearable thermoelectric generators and thermoelectric materials.
