Dr CT Low

Mapping & Projects

Low has extensive inter-disciplinary research experience, which although wide-ranging, focuses on identifying hotspots to facilitate better resilience planning. At CWR, Low uses spatial modelling and statistical analysis as well as remote sensing, cartography, and geo-statistics to map and assess water & climate risks. Low led the analysis on CWR’s recent coastal threat assessments in Asia Pacific as well as for CLSA in the Greater Bay Area and his maps have been well-received among investors and the media. Currently, Low leads CWR’s Re-IMAGINE HK project to catalyse a path toward a regenerative roadmap for a climate ready and resilient Hong Kong.

In addition, Low helps manage CWR’s extensive network, specifically collaborations with universities, government departments, and NGOs. Apart from delivering talks at universities, he has also helped designed waternomics coursework for a master course in HKUST. As a certified GIS Professional, he also taught GIS modules at universities. Low was the editor for “Frontiers in Environmental Informatics” and still reviews other international journals including “Applied Geography”. Completed his study with a PhD from HKU, Low’s thesis on place effect on health was prize-winning. His research on urban environmental health is published in 13 prominent international peer-reviewed journals and book chapters.
