Wai Chung received his BSc (Hons.) in chemistry from Hong Kong Baptist University where he did undergraduate research in DNA-based molecular probes until he switched to organic chemistry and transition metal catalysis in 2013. Currently, he is completing his Ph.D. study in Prof. Fuk Yee Kwong’s research group at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He has developed a series of novel phosphine ligands for palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions and catalytic methods towards material science. In spring 2018, Wai Chung will join the group of Prof. Timothy F. Jamison at Massachusetts Institute of Technology to carry out his post-doctoral research.
