Dr. Wai Mo Suen obtained his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). He is the founder and CEO of ClusterTech Limited, a company providing advanced computing solutions. He is also a professor of theoretical physics at the Washington University and an honorary professor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).
Dr. Suen has over 30 years of experience in advanced computing technologies, and has led multi-national supercomputing projects on relativistic astrophysics starting in the 90’s.
In 1999, he brought his research projects on black holes to CUHK as a visiting professor, only to find that Hong Kong did not have high performance computing facilities for large-scale numerical research. This was in sharp contrast to that in the U.S. where high performance computing was being widely used in not only scientific research, but also real-life problems in areas ranging from finance to manufacturing and public services. This prompted Dr. Suen to found ClusterTech Limited with the vision to promote applications of advanced computing technologies in Greater China and East Asia.
Under his leadership, ClusterTech has served hundreds of national organisations and companies in the region with solutions on High Performance Computing, Big Data Infrastructure and Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence.
