Prof Mok received his BASc, MASc and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in 1986, 1989 and 1995, respectively. While at the University of Toronto, he was a teaching assistant in both the Electrical Engineering and Industrial Engineering departments from 1986 to 1992. He taught courses in circuit theory, IC engineering and engineering economics. In January 1995, he joined the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, where he is currently a Professor. His research interests include semiconductor devices, processing technologies and circuit designs for power electronics and telecommunications applications, with current emphasis on power management integrated circuits, low-voltage analog integrated circuits and energy harvesting circuits and systems design.
Prof Mok is a recipient of the Connaught Scholarship, Ontario Graduate Scholarship, University of Toronto Open Doctoral Fellowship, Henry G. Acres Medal, W.S. Wilson Medal and Teaching Assistant Award from the University of Toronto and the Teaching Excellence Appreciation Award three times from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He is also a co-recipient of the Best Student Paper Award twice in 2002 and 2009 IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference and twice in 2008 and 2010 IEEE International Conference on Electron Devices and Solid-State Circuits. Prof Mok was a member of the International Technical Program Committee of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) from 2005 to 2010 and from 2015 to 2016. He had served as an associate editor for IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits from 2006 to 2011, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems - II from 2005 to 2007 and from 2012 to 2015, and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems - I from 2007 to 2010, and has served again since 2016. He had served as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society from 2009 to 2010. He was also a member of Engineering Panel of Research Grants Council (RGC), University Grants Committee, Government of the Hong Kong SAR from 2009 to 2015 and a member of Technology Review Panel, ASTRI Information and Communication Technology R&D Centre, Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute Limited, Hong Kong SAR since 2010. Prof Mok is a Fellow of IEEE.
