Brief

Dr. Lui is a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Department of Building Services Engineering of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong.  She graduated from the same department and university with a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) degree in Building Services Engineering in 1995 and then a PhD degree in 2001.  She joined the same department and university as a Demonstrator in 2001 after working in a Building Services Engineering Consultancy Firm as Undergraduate Trainee, Assistant Engineer and then Engineer for a total of 4 years.  She advanced through her career ladder to Lecturer in 2002 and then Assistant Professor in 2005.  She further became a Senior Teaching Fellow in September 2016.  Her subject specialism lies on fire services, safety engineering and building services engineering system design

 

Dr. Lui, as the only winner, won the David B. Gratz Scholarship, a competitive scholarship for graduate students enrolled in Fire Science or Fire Engineering Programs outside of the United States in 2000.  The scholarship was funded by the National Fire Protection Association, Fire Safety Educational Memorial Fund, National Fire Protection Association, Quincy, Massachusetts, U.S.A.  For professional qualifications, she joined The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) in 1995 after BEng graduation and then became a Chartered Engineer in January 2008.  Besides, she was nominated by The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) - Hong Kong Chapter as a representative to attend the Fire Safety Standard Advisory Group (FSSAG) meetings of Fire Services Department (FSD) as regular member in January 2016.
