BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Vonika Au received her BSc with First Class Honors (Major in Chemistry and Minor in Philosophy) in 2007 from The University of Hong Kong. She obtained her PhD in 2012 from the same university under the supervision of Prof. Vivian W.-W. Yam, with her work focused on luminescent transition metal complexes for supramolecular assemblies and organic electronics. She has been a postdoctoral fellow in the same group and a visiting researcher in the Optoelectronic Components and Materials Group of Prof. Stephen R. Forrest at the University of Michigan. In 2015, she moved to The University of Tokyo and worked with Prof. Takuzo Aida and Dr. Hiroshi Sato under the support of the JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers. She extended her research to polymeric materials, and worked on the engineering of nanomaterials based on metal–organic frameworks. Before joining Kyoto University, Dr. Au has been an Assistant Professor (2018–23) and the Programme Leader of the Master of Arts in Education for Sustainability programme (2021–23) at the Department of Science and Environmental Studies, The Education University of Hong Kong. Dr. Au's research interests include the design and synthesis of functional porous materials and coordination transition metal complexes for sustainable energy and environmental applications.
