I am Chair Professor of Computer Science and Associate Vice-President (Research) at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). I serve as Director of Centre for Health Informatics and the Joint Research Laboratory for Intelligent Disease Surveillance and Control, a partnership between Computer Science Department at HKBU and National Institute of Parasitic Diseases (NIPD) in the Chinese Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (China CDC). 


I have been the Co-Director of Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), which consists of world-wide WIC research centres in over 20 countries, and the Co-Chair of the WIC Technical Committee, since 2002.  I was the Chair of IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII) from 2010 to 2014.


I received my MEng and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from McGill University (with Centre for Intelligent Machines and funded by Hydro-Quebec), having obtained my MA degree from Concordia University and BSc from East China Normal University.  Before 1994, I worked at Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM), Virtual Prototypes Inc. (VPI) (now Presagis), Knowledge Engineering Technology Inc. (KENTEK) and Canadian Workplace Automation Research Centre (CWARC), Department of Communications, Government of Canada.


My research interests are in the areas of: 

1.   Computational Healthcare;

2.   Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC) & Complex Systems;

3.   Web Intelligence (WI) & Complex Networks;

4.   AI Systems & Robots.


I was named IEEE Fellow for my original contributions to Multi-Agent Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC) and Web Intelligence (WI) in 2011, and received HKBU President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Scholarly Work in 2007.  I have been invited to give Keynote Talks at ICDS’14 (1st International Conference on Data Science), BHI’13 (International Conference on Brain/Health Informatics), AI Forum’13, ICNC’08-FSKD’08, ADMA’08, AWIC’07, RSEISP’07, RSKT 2006, AMT’06, and AWIC'05 (Atlantic Web Intelligence Conference) etc., as well as Plenary Talks at WI-IAT’08, KES’05, MMAS 2004, ISMIS’03, and IJCAI’03 (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence), among others.


I have served as the Editor-in-Chief of Web Intelligence Journal (IOS), an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, Big Data and Information Analytics (AIMS), Network Modeling and Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (Springer), Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (Bentham), and Computational Intelligence (Wiley) etc., a Book Series Editor of Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (IOS) and Health Information Science (Springer), and an Editorial Board Member of several other international journals.  I was the General or Program Chair of numerous international conferences, e.g., IEEE CBMS’13 (IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems), ACM IHI’12 (ACM SIGHIT International Health Informatics Symposium), ISMIS’12, IEEE ICDM’06, IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT’05, EEE’04, and IDEAL’03 etc..
