Dr. Edward Lau


劉特銓博士

Graduated from the University of Hong Kong (HKU), Dr. Edward Lau devoted his PhD study to investigating how chemical pollution, climate change and the presence of invasive species affect local species.


Having been a teaching assistant for a number of ecology courses at HKU, Edward is an experienced educator. He was awarded an Excellent Teaching Assistant Award by the Faculty of Science in recognition of his passion for teaching in 2012. In 2015, Edward became aware of the rising interest in herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles) among students, and so he put together a 3-month herpetology course to provide them with fundamental knowledge as well as to convey important conservation messages concerning herpetofauna. During his study, Edward also travelled between continents for ecological surveys and international conferences on environmental protection and conservation, and he has received Best Presentation awards on various occasions. 


Like his fellow teammates at OWLHK, Edward loves nature and is highly concerned about nature conservation. He enjoys exploring the enchanting wildlife in Hong Kong as well as that in other countries. One of his favourite adventures happened in northern India where he spent five nights out in the wild at temperature close to -20˚C in search of the elusive snow leopard.


He wishes to share his love for nature with other people through OWLHK and to prompt a reflection of our relationship with nature.  


香港大學哲學博士,致力研究環境污染﹑氣候變化及外來物種對本地生態的影響。


曾任多個生態學科的教學助理,有豐富的教學經驗。憑著其對教育的熱誠及執著,於2012年榮獲由香港大學理學院所頒授的「最佳教學助理獎」。有見學生對兩棲爬行類感興趣,Edward更於2015年間策劃一個為期三個月的兩棲爬行類課程,以提升大學生對有關動物的認識及向他們灌輸相關的保育資訊。Edward曾到訪五大洲各地進行生態調查及參加有關環境保護及生態保育的國際研討會,更在不同的會議上榮獲「最佳演說」獎項。

與其他OWLHK的創辦成員一樣,Edward熱愛大自然,關注生態保育,喜愛探索香港與其他不同國家的自然生態。印象最深刻的一次經歷是在印度北部山區,於接近攝氏零下二十度的環境下,在野外度過了五個晚上,追尋雪豹的蹤影。


Edward希望透過OWLHK與其他人分享他對大自然的熱愛,亦希望藉以令人反思人類與大自然的微妙關係。
