Chinese Name: 霍年亨

Variants: Fok, L.

Dr. Lincoln Fok is Associate Professor of the Department of Science and Environmental Studies. He is a believer of, and practices experiential learning. By training, his research focuses on hydrology/ geomorphology with a particular concern on the impacts of water and sediment quantity and quality along with their implications on the environment. More recently, his research has also been extended to other fields including marine plastic pollution, eco-tourism, protected area management, environmental consciousness and education for sustainability.

Research interests

  • Microplastic pollution
  • Hydrology
  • Fluvial geomorphology, particularly sediment production, transport and properties
  • Water quality issues and impacts
  • Education for sustainability
