I received my BSc and MSc degree in Geology from the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, and my PhD degree from the University of Hong Kong. My research interests in Petrology and Geochemistry took me to Finland, Egypt and New Zealand. I specialized in studies on the evolution of subduction zone magmas and sub-arc processes, in particular on garnet-bearing and high-magnesium andesites as well as trace-element distributions in magmatic garnets. Besides teaching undergraduate core courses in the Earth Science major I am also the Curator of the Stephen Hui Geological Museum, which I set-up and developed to become the first geological museum in Hong Kong. My aim is to provide a long-term Knowledge Exchange facility at HKU to engage with the community of all ages and to stimulate a greater interest and understanding in the Earth Sciences and our natural environment through attractive object-based learning. My efforts in designing and establishing the Stephen Hui Geological Museum has been recognized by HKU with the Faculty Knowledge Exchange Award 2015.
