Professor Mok received his B.A.Sc., M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. 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. He was also employed as a Research Assistant in the Integrated Circuit Laboratory at the University of Toronto from 1992 to 1994. 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 current research interests include power management integrated circuits, low-voltage analog integrated circuits and RF integrated circuits design.
Professor 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. Professor Mok is a Fellow of IEEE and has been a member of the International Technical Program Committees of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) from 2005 to 2010.  He has served as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society from 2009 to 2010, as an associate editor for IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits from 2006 to 2011, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – I from 2007 to 2009, and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – II from 2005 to 2007 and has served again since 2012. He is also a Member of Engineering Panel of Research Grants Council (RGC), University Grants Committee, Government of the Hong Kong SAR since 2009 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.
