    Biography

    Prof. Kwok (Ricky) joined OUHK in February 2021 as the Vice-President (Students and Support).  He was the Associate Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) for five years from January 2015 to December 2019, spearheading various mission-critical institutional e-learning endeavours (e.g., MOOCs, flipped-classroom learning, innovative pedagogies and platforms, learning analytic research, etc.) via a university-central unit called Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative (TELI) which he founded in 2015.  He also served as an Associate Dean of Engineering and the Deputy Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at HKU.  Prior to that, he was a full-time staff member at Colorado State University (Fort Collins, Colorado, USA), University of Southern California (Los Angeles, California, USA), and Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana, USA).

    Ricky’s research focus has been on designing efficient communication protocols and robust resources management algorithms toward enabling large scale distributed mobile computing. In these research areas, he has authored one textbook, co-authored another two textbooks, and published more than 200 technical papers in various leading journals, research books, and refereed international conference proceedings (more bibliographical information can be found from his profiles in Google Scholar and ResearcherID). Over his 23 years with HKU, Ricky's R&D work has received funding support in excess of HK$100 million (as Project Coordinator, PI, or Co-PI). 

    Ricky is a Senior member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). He is a Fellow of the HKIE, the IEEE (for “Contributions to Resource Scheduling Algorithms in Parallel and Distributed Systems”), and the IET. He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Communications Society. From March 2006 to December 2011, Ricky served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing as a Subject Area Editor in Peer-to-Peer Computing. He also served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems for four years from January 2013 to December 2016.

    Ricky received the Outstanding Young Researcher Award from HKU in November 2004. In January 2010, one of his journal papers was ranked #4 among top ten All-Time Most Cited Papers published in the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, based on Scopus and Google Scholar citation counts as of October 2009 (see the Editor’s Note for details). In April 2013, he got the Outstanding Reviewer Service Award from the IEEE Computer Society (under the Reviewer Appreciation Program) because as of 2013 he was the All-Time Most Prolific Reviewer for the IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (see this official announcement).
