Professor Wing Yim Tam earned his BSc degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He completed his PhD degree at the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1985. Before he joined the Physics Department of HKUST in 1993, he taught in the University of Arizona.

Professor Tam's main research interests include non-linear dynamics, soft-condensed matter, fractals, cellular dynamics, complex/Electrorheological (ER) fluids, photonic crystals, self-assembled meso-porous materials, holographic lithography, plasmonics and meta-materials.
