Biography
Dr Yong Hu received his BSc and MSc degrees in the Biomedical Engineering from Tianjin University, Tianjin, China in 1985 and 1988, respectively, his PhD degree from The University of Hong Kong in 1999. He is currently an Assistant professor, the director of Lab of Neural Engineering and Clinical Electrophysiology, in the Department of Orthopaedics & Traumatology, The University of Hong Kong. He is also an adjunction ‘Xiehe Chair Professor’ of Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College. His main research area is clinical electrophysiology, neural engineering, and biomedical signal processing, hardware implementation for signal processing.
Dr. Hu was awarded several prizes for his academic contributions. His paper was awarded the best paper for 2008 in Anaesth Intensive Care, Oldendorf Award for the best manuscript in the 34th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neuroimaging 2011, Cum Laude Best Poster Award in SPIE Medical Imaging conference 2011. In 2006 and 2007, he was awarded Macnab/Larocca Research Fellowship twice from the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS) in his study on Using topography of surface EMG from lumbar muscle to quantify the mechanics of “mechanical” low back pain and physiotherapy progress. His work on time-frequency analysis of SEP has been selected into the The Yearbook of Medical Informatics 2003.
He served as members of several international and national professional bodies and esteemed societies. He was invited to be session chairs in several international conferences and keynote speaker in 14 international or national conferences in the past 3 years. As a recognized authority in biomedical engineering and clinical electrophysiology, he has been invited to be visiting professors to many institutions.
