Assistant Professor - The Chinese University of Hong Kong;

Jonathan Choi attended both Victoria Nursery and Victoria Kindergarten from 1985 to 1989. Nurtured by his Victoria teachers who promote individual expression of ideas, he developed an optimistic and fun-loving outlook on life, as evidenced by his receipt of the "Best Singing Award" and "Best Storytelling Award" during his kindergarten days. His caring and generous teachers also inspired him about the importance of social service, encouraging him to participate in a tree-planting charity event with his classmates, teachers, and senior management.

Professor Choi obtained his BSc.and MSc. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University in 2005 and 2006, respectively.  In 2011, he received his PhD. degree in Chemical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology.  From 2011 to 2013, he worked as a Croucher Foundation postdoctoral research fellow at Northwestern University, studying the interactions between DNA-based nanostructures and the cell.  He has co-developed a novel nanoparticle-based probe for tracking the differentiation of living stem cells, and won the Croucher Innovation Award in 2016.
