Assis.Pro.Yim Hung Lam,  The Chinese University of Hong Kong,  Hong Kong


Research Area:

Regional and urban air pollution; climate-air quality interactions; air pollution exposure; urban climatology


Research Experience:

Dr Steve H.L. Yim got his bachelor and Ph.D. degrees in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He previously worked as a postdoctoral fellow in University of Cambridge and a research scientist in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Dr. Yim now is an assistant professor of the Department of Geography and Resource Management at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research focuses on interactions between climate and air quality, and the impacts on public health and ecosystem. His on-going research is to advance and utilize state-of-the-art multi-scale atmospheric models, along with measurement and statistical approaches, to understand the mechanisms that drive the formation of air pollution and climate-air quality interactions, and to also evaluate the impacts on human exposure, mosquito abundance and soil acidity. Particular interests are in investigating air quality impacts of sectoral emissions and transboundary air pollution at multiple spatial scales, and studying regional climate change due to land-use changes and global climate change. His research also assesses and develops emission control scenarios to provide scientific- and evidence-based policy solutions for a sustainable environment in present and future years.
