Lucy Icking (middle) and her colleagues in Dr Hsu Li-ta's laboratory for urban satellite positioning researches.

Lucy Icking, a German table tennis player of TTV 2015 Seelze, spent four months at the Department of Aeronautical and Aviation Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU AAE) working on urban satellite positioning research from July to November 2021.

In an interview by Sport Buzzer, Icking explained that she was attracted by the excellent reputation of PolyU AAE’s urban satellite positioning research team. She then decided to join PolyU’s Research Student Attachment Programme (In-coming Visiting PhD Students), adding a unique adventure to her doctorate in Hong Kong. The research focused on improving the accuracy of the locating system by various ways and means of communicating with the artificial celestial bodies.

Apart from her science research, Icking also kept up with her table tennis training in the University’s squad and a club.

AAE has been actively engaging in internationalization and we welcome researchers and scholars from around the globe to join our big family.
