Research Interests:


Dr. Cheung received his Bachelors degree in Physiotherapy from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He worked as a frontline clinician in both public and private settings for years. After earning his PhD in the area of sports biomechanics from the same university, Dr. Cheung completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School, where he studied the relationship between running biomechanics and injury, and methods to examine real time kinematics of foot structures and patella. His current areas of study include biomechanics in runners, efficacy of prophylactic device for sportsmen, and gait retraining for rehabilitation and injury prevention. Dr. Cheung has obtained major research grants e.g. Early Career Scheme, General Research Fund, Research Impact Fund from the HKUGC, Health & Medical Research Fund from the Food & Health Bureau, and Innovation & Technology Fund from the Innovation & Technology Commission.
