Christopher Chao

Prof. Christopher Chao is a Chair Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering (First Class) from The University of Hong Kong in 1988. He obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from The University of California, Berkeley, USA, in 1992 and 1994, respectively. Prof. Chao studies thermal and environmental engineering covering areas of indoor air science, energy efficient building technology and energy engineering. He is internationally known for his work in contaminant transport in indoor environments. Prof. Chao’s research also includes low-energy air distribution systems, VOC oxidation and ultrafine particles, solar and waste heat driven adsorption cooling and refrigeration system development and smart green buildings. He is a Regional Editor of Journal of Indoor and Built Environment and is on the Editorial Board of several International Journals (Indoor Air, Building and Environment, Building Simulation, etc). Prof. Chao has published 110+ journal and archival papers and more than 100 conference papers and technical reports. He was conferred the Yaglou Award by the International Academy of Indoor Air Sciences (2002) and also the Ralph G. Nevins Physiology and Human Environment Award by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (2005). 

Prof. Chao developed/ teaches courses in thermodynamics, indoor air quality in buildings, and sustainable energy systems. He has been Director of the Building Energy Research Center at HKUST since 2000, leading the effort to integrate academic research into commercial product development especially for the mainland China market. Prof. Chao has various leadership experiences at HKUST and has served as Associate Dean of Engineering (Research and Graduate Studies) from September of 2011 to June of 2014. He has been Head of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department since July of 2014. 

Prof. Chao is a Fellow of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (FASME), USA, The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (FIMechE), UK, The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (FCIBSE), UK, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (FHKIE), and a member of The International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ) Academy of Fellows. He is a member of the Engineering Panel of the Hong Kong Research Grant Council, and also a vetting member in the Assessment Panel (Foundation Industries) of the Innovation Technology Commission in Hong Kong. Prof. Chao is also active in entrepreneurship and technology transfer, and has obtained more than 10 patents and got involved in setting up a number of start-ups since early 2000s.
