Biography

Biography

Prof. Andrew Wing On Poon received his BA (Hons.) degree from The University of Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1995, and his MPhil and PhD degrees in Physics from Yale University, Connecticut, USA, in 1998 and 2001. In 2001, he joined the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, as an Assistant Professor. Since then, he has risen through the ranks and is now a Head and Professor in Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering.

Since 2002, Prof. Poon and his students at HKUST have been spearheading diverse research directions in optical microcavities leveraging wafer-level silicon nanofabrication processes.  The Poon group is among the early players of the now global silicon photonics community in academia and industry.  He is a Senior Editor of the IEEE Photonics Technology Letters. He served as a Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (JSTQE) on Silicon Photonics 2016. He is the General Chair of the 6th International Workshop on Microcavities and Their Applications (WOMA) 2022, Hong Kong. He has published one co-edited book - World Scientific 2011.
