RSRG's Urban Heat Island work to be exhibited at the Hong Kong Science Museum. The Grand Opening of the Exhibition has been scheduled at 4pm on 10th June.

Alex Pui-hang To



I did my BSc in Geomatics (Geo-Information Technology) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, followed by an MPhil in Remote Sensing and GIS. My research interests include application of thermal imagery and GIS in urban micro-climate monitoring and sustainable urbanisation. I have previously tutored practical classes in Remote Sensing and Environmental Management, and have currently taken up part-time appointment with the University.
