Biography

Dr. Yaru Fu received her Ph.D in Electronic Engineering from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) in 2018. Then, she joined in the Institute of Network Coding (INC), The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) as a Postdoc Research Assistant. From Sep. 2018 to Jun. 2020, she served as a Research Fellow in Singapore University of Technology and Design. From Feb. 2016 to May. 2016, she was a visiting researcher in Telecom Paris Tech (TPT) and Laboratory of Information, Networking and Communication Sciences (Lincs). She was also a visiting researcher with Nokia Bell Labs, Paris, France. She is currently serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, an Associate Editor for the IEEE Networking Letters,  and a Review Editor for the Frontiers in Communications & Networks. She was honored with the 2021 Katie Shu Sui Pui Charitable Trust - Outstanding Research Publication Award (Gold Prize) and the 2022 Best Editor Award for IEEE Wireless Communications Letters.

Jonathan handles all external affairs include business development, patents write up and public relations. He is frequently interviewed by media and is considered a pioneer in 3D printing products.

Krutz Cheuk
Biomedical Engineer
Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital

After graduating from OUHK, Krutz obtained an M.Sc. in Engineering Management from CityU. He is now completing his second master degree, M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering, at CUHK. Krutz has a wide range of working experience. He has been with Siemens, VTech, and PCCW.

Hugo Leung
Software and Hardware Engineer
Innovation Team Company Limited

Hugo Leung Wai-yin, who graduated from his four-year programme in 2015, won the Best Paper Award for his ‘intelligent pill-dispenser’ design at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering’s International Conference on Consumer Electronics – China 2015.

The pill-dispenser alerts patients via sound and LED flashes to pre-set dosage and time intervals. Unlike units currently on the market, Hugo’s design connects to any mobile phone globally. In explaining how it works, he said: ‘There are three layers in the portable pillbox. The lowest level is a controller with various devices which can be connected to mobile phones in remote locations. Patients are alerted by a sound alarm and flashes. Should they fail to follow their prescribed regime, data can be sent via SMS to relatives and friends for follow up.’ The pill-dispenser has four medicine slots, plus a back-up with a LED alert, topped by a 500ml water bottle. It took Hugo three months of research and coding to complete his design, but he feels it was worth all his time and effort.

Hugo’s public examination results were disappointing and he was at a loss about his future before enrolling at the OUHK, which he now realizes was a major turning point in his life. He is grateful for the OUHK’s learning environment, its industry links and the positive guidance and encouragement from his teachers. The University is now exploring the commercial potential of his design with a pharmaceutical company. He hopes that this will benefit the elderly and chronically ill, as well as the society at large.

Soon after completing his studies, Hugo joined an automation technology company as an assistant engineer. He is responsible for the design and development of automation devices. The target is to minimize human labor and increase the quality of products. He is developing products which are used in various sections, including healthcare, manufacturing and consumer electronics.
