Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Water pollution and Pollution. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bay, Environmental engineering, Seawater, Persistent organic pollutant and Perfluorooctane. Paul K.S. Lam works mostly in the field of Environmental engineering, limiting it down to concerns involving Perfluorooctanoic acid and, occasionally, Molecular biology and Solid phase extraction.

As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, concentrating on Toxicity and frequently concerns with Andrology, Metabolite and Hormone. His work is dedicated to discovering how Water pollution, Surface water are connected with Arctic and China and other disciplines. His Pollution research focuses on Contamination and how it connects with Pollutant and Mussel.

His most cited work include:

  • Relationships between tissue concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and antioxidative responses of marine mussels, Perna viridis. (343 citations)
  • Removal of antibiotics from wastewater by sewage treatment facilities in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China. (342 citations)
  • Perfluorinated Compounds in Coastal Waters of Hong Kong, South China, and Korea (320 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Ecology, Pollution, Perna viridis and Fishery. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Environmental engineering and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, Persistent organic pollutant, Pollutant. As part of his studies on Ecology, Paul K.S. Lam often connects relevant areas like Zoology.

His study brings together the fields of Bivalvia and Perna viridis. As part of his studies on Bioaccumulation, Paul K.S. Lam often connects relevant subjects like Trophic level. Water pollution is closely attributed to Seawater in his research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (37.97%)
  • Ecology (14.98%)
  • Pollution (11.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (37.97%)
  • Sewage treatment (4.22%)
  • Bioaccumulation (6.96%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Bioaccumulation, Pollution and South china. His Environmental chemistry study focuses on Hazard quotient in particular. Paul K.S. Lam usually deals with Sewage treatment and limits it to topics linked to Effluent and Sewage.

His Bioaccumulation research includes themes of Trophic level, Pocillopora damicornis and Ciguatoxin. Paul K.S. Lam combines subjects such as Air pollution, Nuisance, Volatile organic compound and Odor with his study of Pollution. In his work, Bay is strongly intertwined with Estuary, which is a subfield of Seawater.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Toxicological effects of two organic ultraviolet filters and a related commercial sunscreen product in adult corals (31 citations)
  • Seasonal occurrence and fate of chiral pharmaceuticals in different sewage treatment systems in Hong Kong: Mass balance, enantiomeric profiling, and risk assessment. (25 citations)
  • Comparative toxicities of four benzophenone ultraviolet filters to two life stages of two coral species. (25 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Paul K.S. Lam mostly deals with Environmental chemistry, Sewage treatment, Effluent, South china and Sewage. His work on Hazard quotient as part of his general Environmental chemistry study is frequently connected to Nitrosopumilus, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His work deals with themes such as Microplastics, Dissolved phase and Hexabromocyclododecane, which intersect with Sewage.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Enantiomer and Surface water. His studies in Microbial population biology integrate themes in fields like Phytoplankton and Pollution. His Estuary study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Contamination, Dry weight, Ocean current and Perfluorooctanoic acid, Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid.
