Computer Science alumni awarded full scholarship to pursue PhD at Oxford University

計算機科學校友獲全額獎學金赴牛津大學修讀博士課程

Moss Zhao, a Computer Science 2012 graduate, was awarded a scholarship from the China Scholarship Council Fund to support the full university fees of his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford in the UK.

Focusing on the quantification of cerebral vascular haemodynamics using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), Moss will join the Quantitative Biomedical Inference research group led by Professor Michael Chappell in the coming October.

“Studying at Computer Science Department has had an enormous impact on my life,” Moss said. “It’s not only where I harnessed my skills, but also where I met people, acquired knowledge, and championed the causes that underpinned my desire to resolve global health issues with the power of computing. I would like to express my most profound gratitude to the Department.”

During his studies at HKBU, he was awarded the Overseas Summer Course Fellowship in 2011 by the Faculty of Science to support his participation in a summer course offered by Stanford University, USA.

As a member of the Science Elite Programme, Moss also participated in a six-month exchange programme at Baylor University and secured a placement at HSBC’s Global Banking and Markets.

計算機科學系2012年畢業生趙一澤獲國家留學基金管理委員會頒發全額獎學金,到英國牛津大學修讀生物醫學工程博士課程。

一澤將在本年10月加入由Michael Chappell教授指導的定量生物學推理研究團隊,集中研究以磁力共振造影量化腦血流動力學。

一澤說:「在計算機科學系的學習對我有重大的影響。我在這裏不單能學以致用,更能認識多些人、獲得知識,更啟發了我對用電腦力量去解決全球性健康問題的渴求。我衷心感謝學系的培育。」

一澤在浸大學習其間,獲理學院頒發「2011年海外暑期課程獎學金」,資助他赴美國史丹福大學修讀暑期課程。

作為理學院優才計劃的參加者之一,一澤亦曾到美國貝勒大學參加半年的交流計劃,和在匯豐銀行的環球銀行及巿場部完成了實習計劃。
