Brief Biosketch

Dr Gary C.P. Tsui was awarded a first-class honours degree in Manufacturing Engineering and a PhD degree from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Dr Tsui is currently an Associate Professor and ISE degree Programme Leader at Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. His specialism is in the field of computational modeling and analysis with research emphasis on composite material engineering. Dr Tsui has authored or co-authored over 110 papers in referred journals and holds two issued US patents. With his work recognized internationally, he is currently editorial board members of various international journals, including “Composites Part B: Engineering”, “Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics” and “World Journal of Engineering”. 

He also served as Chairman of Symposium of Bio-inspired Nano-(composites) of The 24th Annual International Conference on Composites/Nano Engineering held at China in 2016, as well as Chairman of Organizing Committee of The 11th International Conference on Technology Education at Hong Kong in 2015.

Since 2005, he has actively taken part in a learned society “Institute of Industrial Engineers (Hong Kong)”- IIE(HK) for promoting the discipline of Industrial engineering, and was elected to be President of IIE(HK) for the year of 2014/2015. He was a Visiting Academic at the Faculty of Engineering and Surveying and the Centre of Excellence in Engineered Fibre Composites in the University of Southern Queensland, Australia during Nov 2011 – Nov 2012.
