R&D team has ten members consisting the three Directors, Ms. Sarinda Kwok, Mr. Stephen Kwok and Mr. Raymond Cheung, together with another five research scientists led by Dr. Boris Tong, our chief technology officer and Professor Fung, research and development consultant.
Dr. Boris Tong, our chief technology officer, has over 13 years of experience in research and development, and is primarily responsible for establishing a professional research and development team in developing nanofiber technology according to our technology roadmap and establishing a laboratory and operating the laboratory effectively for the development of nanofiber technology.
Our research scientists are responsible for planning and conducting experiments in the fields of nanotechnology and materials science, as well as recording and analysing experimental data. All of the team’s research scientists have experience working in biochemistry or nanofiber related industry and most of them held a master degree or above in chemistry related majors.
