- Winner of 15th Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award (1999-2000)
Prof. Jonathan Choi is currently the Assistant Dean (Student Affairs) of the Faculty of Engineering and an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). He specializes in bionanotechnology, studying the interactions of nanoparticles with the body across the length scales of organ, tissue, cell, and organelle. His research will inform useful ‘design rules’ for building therapeutic and imaging nanoparticles that can target specific body sites. In 2016, he received the Croucher Innovation Award, which recognizes outstanding young investigators from all branches of engineering, medicine and science in Hong Kong. In 2017, he received the Dean’s Exemplary Teaching Award from the CUHK Faculty of Engineering.
Prof. Choi attended Wah Yan College Hong Kong and scored ten distinctions in the 2000 HKCEE. He obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemical engineering from Stanford University in 2005 and 2006, respectively. In 2011, he received his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from the California Institute of Technology. He later served as a Croucher postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University.
