My Favourite Quote:

Jehovah is my Shepherd; I will lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside waters of rest. He restores my soul; He guides me on the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Even though I walk Through the valley of the shadow of death, I do not fear evil, For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, They comfort me.

Psalms 23, the Holy Bible.

Biography

Jeff is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science of Caritas Institute of Higher Education. He received the B.Eng. degree in Computer Engineering from City University of Hong Kong in 2003, the M.Sc. degree from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2005, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from City University of Hong Kong in 2012. Throughout his graduate studies, he was with the 3D Motion Capture Lab of CityU. After graduated, he became a Post-doctoral Fellow at City University of Hong Kong and a Visiting Researcher at the JST ERATO Igarashi Design Interface project of The University of Tokyo in 2012 Summer. He is a member of IEEE and ACM. At present, he is the Treasurer of IEEE Hong Kong Section Education Chapter, an Executive Committee of the IEEE Hong Kong Section Computer Society Chapter, and the Secretary of ACM Hong Kong Chapter.
