I am an environmental scientist by training , specializing in pollution studies and environmental impact assessment studies.  I am now the chairman of the Communicable Disease Prevention sub-committee under the HESC in the university.I am the programme leader of Master of Arts in Education for Sustainability in the faculty. In recent years, I have been commissioned by various bodies such as the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, Environment and Conservation Fund, Quality Education Fund as well as private funds to conduct contract research projects. I also specialize in environmental education research particularly in the evaluation of environmental education programmes and was one of the pioneer in the Green School initiative. In recognition of my role in promoting collaboration between Hong Kong and mainland China I was appointed visiting professor by the Northeast Normal University and South China Normal University. Furthermore I was also appointed as the founding director of the Hong Kong and Guang Zhou centre for Environmental and Science Education in South China Normal University . I am also active in the community, having been appointed as chairman and member of numerous government committees. In order to promote a green culture, I act as the chairman of Green Power, a major green group in Hong Kong . I also served as members of funding bodies such as the Environment and conservation Fund, Waste Recovery project vetting committee for vetting of research applications.I now serve in the Advisory council on the environment (ACE) which adivises the HKSAR on important matters relating to environmental protection Over the years I have secured over 10 million HKD in research and contract research funding . My research findings were published in leading journals such as Applied Catysis B Environmental(impact factor 8.3 2015), Chemical Engineering journal, Journal of Hazardous materials, chemosphere and environmental education research. The total number of published refereed papers is over 80.Internationally, recently I have been been appointed as a panel member (outreach panel)of the International Year of Global Understanding launced by the International Geographical Union(IGU http://global-understanding.info/. In June 2013, Eric was invited by UNESCO Bangkok to deliver a presentation on Hong Kong's Case on promotion of informal and non-formal learning through the Qualification Framework http://www.unescobkk.org/education/literacy-and-lifelong-learning/meetings-and-conferences/national-qualification-framework-for-lifelong-learning-and-skills-development/ through his role as Associate Director of the UNESCO UNEVOC HK .
