Professor Mok, Chaired Professor and Edmund and Peggy Tse Professor of Mathematics at The University of Hong Kong, is a specialist in Several Complex Variables, Complex Differential Geometry and Algebraic Geometry. He resolved the Generalized Frankel Conjecture in Complex Differential Geometry in the affirmative, and, together with Jun-Muk Hwang, he solved the Lazarsfeld Problem in Algebraic Geometry. Professor Mok began his career in Mathematics at Princeton University in 1980. He later went on to become Professor at Columbia University and Université de Paris (Orsay) before returning to Hong Kong in 1994 to take up the Chaired Professorship at HKU. Since 1999, Professor Mok has also been the Director of the Institute of Mathematical Research at HKU. Professor Mok has been serving on the Editorial Boards of a number of mathematical journals including the flagship journal Inventiones Mathematicae and another top journal Mathematische Annalen. He was an Invited Speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich (ICM 1994), served as a Core Member on the Panel for Algebraic and Complex Geometry for ICM 2006 in Madrid, and was appointed Member of the Fields Medal Committee for ICM 2010 in Hyderabad. Among the professional accolades Professor Mok has received are the Alfred Sloan Fellowship in 1984, the Presidential Young Investigator Award of the United States in 1985, the Croucher Senior Fellowship Award in 1998, the State Natural Science Award of China in 2007 and the Bergman Prize of the American Mathematical Society in 2009.
