    Biography

    Dr. Mana Yung graduated from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and obtained her BSc (Chemistry), MSc (Environmental Management) and PhD (Ecotoxicology).  Before joining OUHK, Mana was a Post-doctoral Fellow in the School of Biological Sciences at HKU and has been working on eco-toxicities of nanoparticles in aquatic environment for more than 7 years.  She has published a book chapter in Encyclopedia of Nanotechnology and 10 peer-reviewed journal articles.  Her research findings were also featured in South China Morning Post (SCMP).  Mana has also worked for a number of contract research projects on marine ecology and biodiversity for the government departments.  She serves as a regular reviewer for 4 Elsevier journals.  She was awarded the Certificate of Outstanding Contribution in Reviewing by Aquatic Toxicology in 2017.
