Dr Kin Hing Lo
- Research Assistant (Aerospace Sciences)
Dr Kin Hing (Eric) Lo received his BEng in Mechanical Engineering (1st Class Honours) from the University of Hong Kong. He then worked at the Division of Building Sciences and Technology of City University of Hong Kong as a research assistant. He graduated from the University of Manchester with a Master's degree (with Distinction) in Aerospace Engineering in 2010. He received the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering Scholarship from 2010 to 2013 to conduct his PhD studies at the University of Manchester. He spent 3 years and 3 months to complete his PhD thesis. He graduated with a PhD in Aerospace Engineering (supersonic aerodynamics) from the University of Manchester in 2014. Currently, he is a post-doctoral research associate in the University of Glasgow.
He is regarded as a "general interest" person and indeed he has multiple research interests, from aircraft/ground vehicle/high-speed rail/ship aerodynamics to fundamental fluid mechanics problems (e.g. bluff body aerodynamics, flow separation control, drag reduction, lift and drag generating capability of rotating circular cylinders etc). Recently, he also begins to conduct preliminary research in the areas of transportation policy, planning and operation, transportation ecomony optimisation studies and how the society drives new vehicles (both air, ground and sea vehicles) technologies development.
Outside the university, he is a truck lover and has extrememly strong interested in truck driving. He is a full member of the Society of Automotive Engineer (SAE). He is also a serious fan of Formula 1, GT and, of course, Truck racings.
