Introducing Two New Senior Staff of HSEO
We have recently recruited Ms. Christine Chiu as our new Associate Director of HSEO. Christine is a seasoned EHS professional serving universities and research institutions. She is not a stranger to the colleagues in HKUST as she was one of our earliest members in HSEO. After receiving a long-service award at UST, Christine ventured to PolyU Health Safety and Environment Office in 2017. Briefly served in PolyU, Christine was head-hunted to the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) as the Director of the Safety, Health and Environment Office. She managed an office of three teams, Laboratory Services, Laboratory and Research Safety, and Campus Safety. Under her leadership, the SHE Office was involved in the InnoHK initiative of the Hong Kong Government to establish 28 world-class university research centers in the Science Park. "Returning to HKUST someday" had always been in her mind and we were pleased to have her re-join our office in September 2022, after a keen selection. Her valuable experience in the top-notch scientific research environment will help lead HSEO to the next milestone. Christine will be the second in command of HSEO, and in charge of occupational hygiene, regulatory compliance, and take lead in reinforcing our research safety programs. Christine is a Certified Industrial Hygienist and a Registered Biological Safety Professional.
