I built and continue to maintain the alumni site for The Croucher Foundation which is a private trust set up by the late Noel Croucher, one of the founders of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and a British businessman in Hong Kong for over 70 years. The Foundation specializes in promoting the standard of natural science, technology and medicine in Hong Kong through awards and grants to scientists based in and serving Hong Kong. Croucher Foundation has kindly provided full financial support during my PhD studies at Cambridge.
