Upon receiving my M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a B.Sc. degree from the University of Manitoba, I joined the Department of Computing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and is now an associate professor. My primary research interests are in the study of intelligence, learning and recognition and their applications to a wide spectrum of tasks which involves text data (social media), time series data, multimedia data, social network data, bioinformatics data, etc. I published over 100 journal papers in major international journals, including IEEE TFS, IEEE TNNLS, IEEE TEC, IEEE T-Cybernetics, IEEE TKDE, Pattern Recognition and Neural Networks. I also serve on program committees of top international conferences, including IEEE ICDM, AAAI and ICPR.



Please contact me for the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship scheme's application details if you are interested in my research areas.
