Dr. Antoni Chan is an assistant professor at the City University of Hong Kong in
the Department of Computer Science.
Before joining CityU, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at
the University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego).
He received the Ph.D. degree from UC San Diego in 2008 studying in the
Statistical and Visual Computing Lab (SVCL).
He received the B.Sc. and M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University in 2000 and 2001.
From 2001 to 2003, he was a Visiting Scientist in the Computer Vision and Image Analysis lab at Cornell.
In 2005, he was a summer intern at Google in New York City.
In 2012, he was the recipient of an Early Career Award from the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong SAR, China.
