Computational Intelligence and Creativity




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 (finance and stock) data, multimedia (image and video) data, network/graph data, bioinformatics data, etc. I published widely in prestige journals, including IEEE Transactions, ACM Transactions, and various AI/ML international journals, and also served on program committees of top international conferences.



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