Jacky Chun-Pong Chan is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and Information Sciences. Prior to joining CIHE in 2018, he was a Post-doctoral Teaching Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at Hong Kong Baptist University. He received the BSc degree in Computer Science and PhD degree from the City University of Hong Kong.





My main research interest is on human motion analysis and synthesis, and bioinformatics. Before joining CIHE, I worked on several projects such as dance learning system using optical motion capture system, motion recognition using Microsoft Kinect, analysis of medical record from patient of Chinese and Western medicine, etc. My current research work is to apply deep learning technique on human motion synthesis.
