Personal profile

Biography

Professor Yongping Zheng received the BSc and MEng in Electronics and Information Engineering from the University of Science and Technology of China. He received PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) in 1997. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Windsor, Canada, he joined PolyU as an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Professor in 2008 and Chair Professor in 2019 respectively. He served as the Associate Director of the Research Institute of Innovative Products in PolyU from 2008 to 2010. He has been serving as the Founding Head of Biomedical Engineering since 2012. Prof. Zheng has been appointed as Henry G. Leong Professor in Biomedical Engineering since July 2017. He is currently also the Director of Jockey Club Smart Ageing Hub. 

Prof. Zheng’s main research interests include biomedical ultrasound instrumentation, soft tissue elasticity measurement and imaging, 3D ultrasound imaging, ultrasound assessment of musculoskeletal tissues, ultrasound image and signal processing, and smart aging technologies. He is a Senior Member of IEEE, a Fellow of Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HK), Secretary of World Association of Chinese Biomedical Engineers (2017-2019), the past Chair of Biomedical Engineering Division of HKIE and Honorary Advisor of Hong Kong Medical and Healthcare Device Industry Association (HMHDIA). He also serves as the President of Guangdong Hong Kong Macau Chapter of the International Society of Gerontechnology. He also serves as Associate Editor and Editorial Board Members for some leading journals in the field, including Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, Physiological Measurement, Journal of Medical and Biological Engineering, Journal of Orthopaedic Translation and Biomedical Signal Processing and Control.

He has trained over 10 PhD and 8 MPhil students, and over 10 postdoctoral fellows, and many of them are now Professor and Associate Professors in different universities in Mainland China. He also owned more than 45 patents, published 220 journal papers, and wrote a book “Measurement of Soft Tissue Elasticity In Vivo: Techniques and Applications”, number of technologies invented by his team have been successfully commercialized, including Scolioscan (http://scolioscan.com), an ultrasound device to provide radiation-free assessment of scoliosis.
