The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

The Biological and Life Sciences subject area is a broad field of study, and it includes sustainability and environmental  studies in addition to more hard sciences like genetics and biology. Programs in this field often involve math and data analysis.

Hong Kong is one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China, the other being Macau.
