I am co-founder and CTO of Axon Labs Limited, a company based in Hong Kong specilised in artificial intelligence technologies and applications. My previous positions included researcher at Huawei's Noah's Ark Lab, senior engineer at the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI), and research associate (post-doctoral researcher) at the NTT Communication Science Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan.

I got my PhD in Computer Science in the School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. My supervisors were Professor Nigel Shadbolt and Dr Nicholas Gibbins. My study was generously supported by the R C Lee Centenary Scholarship of Drs Richard Charles and Esther Yewpick Lee Charitable Foundation, Hong Kong. My thesis studies 'collective semantics', which is about how implicit semantics and relationship can be extracted from social sharing activites with a focus on user behaviours.

I obtained my M.Phil degree in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I finished my thesis on fuzzy ontologies under the supervision of Professor Leung Ho Fung. I obtained my B.Eng degree in Information Engineering in the same university from Aug 2001 to Jul 2004. My final year project was finished under the supervision of Professor Calvin Chan in collaboration with Edward Keung.
