Education summary

I studied at Kiangsu-Chekiang Primary School and Kindergarten (1973-1981), a Hong Kong local school that uses Mandarin as the primary teaching language.


After finishing my primary education, I attended TWGHs Lee Ching Dea Memorial College (1981-1984). To further my secondary studies, I went at Victoria College,Jersey, Channel Islands, Great Britain) from 1984-1988, where I did 10 General Certificate of Examinations (GCE) O-levels and 6 A-levels. I was awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for mathematics presented by Her Majesty the Queen (photo, video clip-330kb, vidoe clip-2.3Mb, radio clip) at a ceremony at Victoria College on 25 May 89.


I lived in Cambridge, England from October 1988 to January 1997; I studied at Trinity College, Cambridge University to read Electrical and Information Science at the Department of Engineering. I obtained a BA (Hon.) degree in 1991 and MA in 1994. Soon after I graduated in 1991, I worked till Aug 93 as a system development engineer at a Cambridge based company called CEDAR Audio Ltd. It specializes in restoring degraded audio signal, the company has a close relationship with the dept. of engineering (CEDAR stands for Computer Enhanced Digital Audio Restoration). I started my Ph.D. studies in October 1993 with the Signal Processing and Communications Lab., Department of Engineering, Cambridge University,, under the supervision of Prof. Peter Rayner, the funding was kindly provided by the Croucher Foundation. My main research interest was Blind Signal Separation, which involves separating signals from mixed observed data only, for examples, separating voices from speakers who are speaking simultaneously. I had been an active member of the Cambridge University Chinese society (CUCS), I was elected as the president of CUCS for 1990-1991. I used to teach at the Cambridge Chinese Community School every Sunday.

I have always wanted to learn to speak more languages, during Jan-Apr 2006, Irene and I decided to do a 3-month full time French language course in France, spending 6 weeks in Antibes, South of France and 6 weeks in Paris.
