Prof C.T. Chan received his BSc degree from the University of Hong Kong in 1980 and his PhD degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1985. He joined HKUST in 1995. He is currently a Chair Professor of Physics at HKUST and was the Executive Director of HKUST Institute for Advanced Study between 2012 and 2017. He has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 1996. He received the Achievement in Asia Award of the Overseas Chinese Physics Association (2000) and Croucher Senior Research Fellowship (2010). He received the Michael Gale Medal for Distinguished Teaching at HKUST (1999) and is a co-recipient of Brillouin Medal (2013). His primary research interest is the theory and simulation of material properties. He is now working on the theory a variety of advanced materials, including photonic crystals, metamaterials and nano-materials.
