Dr Hui graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1985. He then trained in Respiratory Medicine and Sleep Medicine in Sydney, Australia.

Dr Hui was heavily involved in the clinical management of patients with SARS during the major outbreak in 2003. He served as a WHO advisor to review the clinical management of influenza A(H5N1) during the early human outbreak in Vietnam in Feb 2004 and has since been a regular advisor to the WHO on the clinical management of severe acute respiratory infections. He has contributed to the WHO treatment guidelines (including the clinical management of influenza A (H5N1) virus in 2007, clinical management of influenza A (H1N1) pandemic in 2009, and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and the WHO training workshop in the clinical management of influenza A(H7N9) and other severe acute respiratory infections in May 2014.

Dr Hui has published over 220 peer-reviewed journal articles and 23 book chapters since joining the CUHK in 1998. His research interests include clinical management of emerging severe acute respiratory infections, the safety of respiratory therapy in the post SARS era, the infection control in the medical ward environment in preventing nosocomial infections, sleep disordered breathing, and common airway diseases.
