Confessions of a researchaholic

Leaving Hong Kong

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 3:32 pm

[Time for me to write this after the course/RPG requests start to flood in prior to the beginning of the next semester.]

I am joining a top research lab to maximize the practical impacts of my research and minimize the unnecessary amounts of jet-lag I have to deal with.

I will remain affiliated with HKU for a bit while. I am not taking new PhD/MS/MPhil candidates or teaching classes, but will continue to help students through my open mentor program and internships with the lab I am joining (more about this later).

I would like to thank my family, friends, colleagues, collaborators, and students who have given me such a wonderful experience in Hong Kong. I will continue to explore this interesting world.

PS: To whomever plans to teach COMP-3314 the Machine Learning class in the future – similar to the Defense against the Dark Arts class in Hogwarts, it has the tendency to dispel the teacher after the semester. 😀


  1. Thanks for having got genuine guidance from you in graphics work and more profoundly in self-exploring and development.

    Cheers and Best Whishes! 🙂

    • It is my pleasure to work with you, Rui. It is kinda funny that after telling you that I planned to leave I managed to stay put for a few more years. =D
