Dr. Lai-Man Po received his BSc degree with First Class Honors and his PhD degree from City University of Hong Kong in 1988 and 1991, respectively. In 1988, he won the First Prize in the Paper Contest for Students and Non-corporate Members organized by the Institute of Electronics and Radio Engineers of Hong Kong. In the same year, he also obtained a 3-year Postgraduate Fellowship from the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Council for his postgraduate studies in City University of Hong Kong. After he obtained the Ph.D. degree, he joined the Department of Electronic Engineering, City University of Hong Kong. Currently, Dr. Po is Associate Professor and Lab Director of Texas Instruments Educational Training Centre in the Electronic Engineering Department. He has published over 160 technical journal and conference papers with more than 4,500 citations.


Dr. Po was the chairman of the IEEE Hong Kong Chapter of Signal Processing Chapter in 2011 and 2012. He is a member of the Technical Committee on Multimedia Systems and Applications, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and an Associate Editor of the HKIE Transactions. He also served on the organizing committees of the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing in 2003, the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing in 2010, and other conferences.
