Dr. Victor Lo obtained a B.Sc. from National Taiwan University (1967), an M.Sc. from the University of Hawaii (1970), a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts (1975) and served as an Assistant Professor at the Technical University of Nova Scotia prior to becoming a faculty member at UBC in 1980. Dr. Lo's research focuses on biological process applications in waste treatment and applications of microwave enhanced advanced oxidation processes in solid reduction, nutrients solubilization and recovery from organic slurries. His work has led to advancements in the treatment of swine waste and improvements in composting practices in many B.C. communities. Dr. Lo has served as the Director of the UBC/UNBC Environmental Engineering program since 2011.
