1. Professor Hang YIN
2. Dr Yiwen WANG
About the Webinar
Two alumni from Physics Department have been invited to share their journeys into an academic career, starting with their studies in MSc in Green Technology (Energy) and then as PhD students from the Department of Physics. The sharing will be conducted primarily in English, but Cantonese and Mandarin may be intermittently used. All who are interested in career advice are welcome.
Professor Hang YIN
Hang Yin is a Professor at the School of Physics at Shandong University, China. He received his Ph.D. degree in Physics in 2017 from Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and his MSc degree in Green Technology (Energy) in 2012, also from HKBU. During his PhD study, he conducted research in organic solar cells under the supervision of Prof. S.K. So. His current major research interest is the transport and defect study of organic thin ﬁlm materials, device physics of organic solar cells and thin ﬁlm transistors.
Dr Yiwen WANG
Dr Yiwen Wang is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Queen Mary University of London. She received a Ph.D. in 2019 from HKBU. She focused on the stability of nonfullerene organic solar cells during her Ph.D study under the supervision of Prof. Furong Zhu, and she continued her research interest in the stability study of organic solar cells as a Postdoc in Queen Mary University of London. During her Ph.D. study in HKBU, she was awarded Wai Tak Land Investment & Loan Co., Ltd. Research Scholarship in 2018 and published her research results in Advanced Energy Materials, Journal of Materials Chemistry A and Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters during her PhD. study. She received her MSc degree with the 1st Class Hons in Green Technology (Energy) from HKBU in 2015. The MSc experience in HKBU motivated her for further study. Dr. Wang enjoyed the rigorous research training during her Ph.D. study, and highlighted that “Organic Optoelectronics courses gave me a lot of inspiration and made me have a strong interest in organic optoelectronics”.

About the Webinar
Two alumni from Physics Department have been invited to share their career and job hunting experience with students from the Department of Physics. Dr Martin Ma is from the graduating class of 2016 while Miss Wong Ho Yan from 2017 (BSc in Green Energy Science). The sharing will be conducted primarily in Cantonese, but English will be intermittently used. All who are interested in job hunting and career advice are welcome.
Dr Martin Ma
Dr Ma Lik Kuen (Martin) is an engineer in the Energy sector of Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Limited (NAMI). He works on the R&D of impact energy and acoustic absorption materials. He received a Ph.D. in 2020 from HKUST. His Ph.D. research was related to the chemical and physical properties of organic solar cell materials. During his study, he participated in many international scientific events and obtained many presentation awards from Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan. He received his BSc with 1st Class Hons in Green Energy Science from HKBU in 2016. In BU, he joined the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program 2015 where he started his very first scientific research work under the supervision of Prof. So Shu
Kong. His FYP thesis was named in 2016 as the best thesis by the HK Institute of Engineers under the Materials Division.
Miss Hoi-yan Wong
Yan obtained a bachelor's degree in Green Energy Science at HKBU in 2017. She was an exchange student in Austria and attended the 2016 World Energy Engineer Congress in Washington DC. “Physics department encourages me to gain overseas experiences, but also helps me lay a basic foundation of energy management and science study.” She has over 4 years of experience in the field of renewable energy and environmental management. She is currently working as an environmental protection inspector in the Environmental Protection Department, and is responsible for conducting and overseeing compliance inspections under various environmental legislative requirements. Previously, she was an officer and team leader at a public trade company which offers broadband network service. There, she was in charge of energy and environmental audits, and consultancies, educational and environmental programmes coordination.
