Leaving CUHK

Dear All, I will be leaving CUHK at the end of August after having spent a wonderful 12 years here. I will be going to my alma mater, the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Sydney and my new website (with contact details) is I had a great time here, was very productive and made a lot of friends. Thank you very much for helping to make it such a wonderful period for me and I hope you will look me up if you visit Sydney.
