Dr Chan Rosa Ho ManAssociate Professor at the City University of Hong Kong Department of Electrical Engineering, specialist of computational and brain-computer interface applications

Rosa is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the City University of Hong Kong. Her research interests include computational neuroscience, neural prosthesis, and brain-computer interface applications. She received the B. Eng. (1st Hon.) degree in Automation and Computer-Aided Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2003.

She was later awarded the Croucher Scholarship and Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship for Overseas Studies in 2004. She received her Ph. D. degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2011 from the University of Southern California (USC), where she also received her M. S. degrees in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering. Her lab builds computational tools to better understand how the brain works. She was the co-recipient of the Outstanding Paper Award of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering in 2013, for their research breakthroughs in mathematical modelling of the hippocampus for the development of cognitive prosthesis.

Dr. Chan was the Chair of the Hong Kong-Macau Joint Chapter of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) in 2014. She is elected to the IEEE EMBS Administrative Committee (AdCom) as Asia Pacific Representative (2018-2023). She is currently an editorial board member of the Journal of Neural Engineering, and an area editor of Encyclopedia Brain published by IEEE-Wiley.
