Prof. Kaimin Shih
The University of Hong Kong, China
Biography: Kaimin Shih is currently a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Hong Kong. He received his Ph.D. and the postdoctoral training in the Environmental Engineering and Science program at Stanford University. After joining the University of Hong Kong, he has established and led the “Environmental Materials Research Group” since 2008. Their work is primarily to engineer and employ material properties for innovative environmental and energy applications. Professor Shih is particularly interested in studying the mass transfer behavior in solid matrices and at water-mineral interfaces. He has carried out research projects related to waste-to-resource strategies, environmentally-friendly materials/products, urban environmental pollutants, water and waste treatment technologies, and energy-storage materials. Professor Shih has published 170+ SCI journal articles, authored 8 book chapters, and edited 2 books. He is currently a member of the Scientific Advisory Board in the International Waste Working Group, serves as executive committee members in 5 environmental associations, and serves as an editor or associate editor in 4 peer-reviewed scientific journals. In 2014, he received university’s Outstanding Teaching Award for his extraordinary contribution to the environmental engineering education at the University of Hong Kong.
