Dr. Cheung, Man Ching

Assistant Lecturer

I received my BSc and MSc degree in Geology from the University of Texas at Arlington in the USA, and pursued a PhD in the University of Hong Kong. My research interests focus on Quaternary climatic and environmental changes by using various paleoclimatic reconstruction proxies including organic geochemistry and palynology on terrestrial sediments to address regional climate change and to reconstruct paleoclimate events
