Contact Information

Dr Patrick Pang is currently a Lecturer (equivalent to an Assistant Professor) and a PhD supervisor in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at Macao Polytechnic University (MPU). He received his PhD from the University of Melbourne and held appointments at the University of Melbourne and Victoria University before joining MPU. He was the recipient of the Early Career Researcher Award of the University of Melbourne and has since obtained funding from the Macao Science and Technology Development Fund (FDCT). His research interests include natural language processing (NLP) applications, digital health and educational technologies. His interdisciplinary work seeks to build AI applications for health and education, thanks to his many years of industry experience in designing and building IT systems.

At the moment, he is recruiting self-motivated students for two major research streams:

  • NLP Applications: Recent projects include industrial applications with large language models (LLMs), LLM-based patient-centred applications, NLP applications for quality and patient safety, and improving the explainability of medical AI models with NLP.
  • AI in Education: Recent projects include AI literacy, education data mining, AI in medical and public health education, innovative technologies for communicating complex messages, and personalised information visualisations for presenting learning feedback.

For current MSc and prospective PhD students looking for supervision, please visit this page for more information. Students with different backgrounds, for example, computer science, information system management, data science, interaction design and educational technologies, are welcome.
