[Research summary in one slide]
Opening: I am now looking for motivated (remote) summer intern students and Research Assistant (RA) for Summer 2022. If you are interested in and want to collaborate with me, feel free to contact me with your CV. For the previous successful cases, please refer to Mentoring. On the other hand, before contacting me, please carefully evaluate your motivation and your time. Most students would give up in one or two weeks.
In that case, it would waste your time and hurt your credit in the long term. Giving up is terrible for personal development and destroys your confidence.
Opening: I am now looking for motivated PhD/Mphil students, working on machine learning and healthcare, for 2023Fall. If you are interested, feel free to drop me an email with your CV. You are also encouraged to apply through our official website, either regular apply or HKPFS. You can know more about what the supervisor can provide here.
Opening: We also have several Postdoc position openings. If you think you are qualified, feel free to drop me an email with your CV.
