A FORMER TP Diploma in Electronics student, Antony
Lui Hoi Shun, is currently studying the application
of sub-surface radar target detection techniques on
the human body, as part of his PhD research thesis at
the University of Queensland, Australia.
Originally developed for locating landmines on the
battlefield, this technology may give the medical world
a new method of detecting hip prosthesis decay.
Antony presented his interim findings at the 26th Annual
International Conference of the Engineering In Medicine
and Biology Society, held in San Francisco in 2004.
The brilliant 25-year-old, whose ambition is to be
scientist, graduated with First Class Honours from the
University of Queensland in 2003, winning the prestigious
University Medal in the process.
However, that was not his first major academic achievement.
He had earlier clinched the coveted Lee Kuan Yew Gold
Medal for his outstanding academic performance at TP
Humbly giving credit to his alma mater, Antony said:
My diploma course gave me the strong fundamentals
to pick up new things,
launching me into the world of R&D that is my passion.
Antony is expected to complete his PhD in 2008.
