The idea of the phase field method could be traced back to Lord Rayleigh, Josiah Willard Gibbs and Van der Waals. Since then, it has emerged as a powerful approach for modeling and predicting mesoscale morphological and microstructural evolution arising from many fields, such as biology, material sciences, image processing, multiphase fluid mechanics, chemical and petroleum engineering, etc…

Globalisation is a major trend in world development. With the popularisation of the Internet, communication technology has developed rapidly and encouraged spread of knowledge and exchange of ideas. Knowledge and scientific research are also going globalised. From basic scientific research to the development of innovative technology, there are rapid proliferation of cross-region and cross-discipline collaboration...

The COVID-19 pandemic (the pandemic) continues to affect the world, research teams in different countries/places have been working relentlessly to combat the pandemic. Besides epidemiological study, vaccines development, and clinical management which are fields that are directly related to the combat of the pandemic, some areas of medicine where COVID-19 also has an important impact on patient care are being studied by Hong Kong medical teams…
