Biography

Jungong Han is currently a Full Professor and Chair in Computer Science at Aberystwyth University, UK. He was a tenured Associate Professor of Data Science at the University of Warwick (QS world ranking 62), a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) with School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University (a TOP 10 UK University), UK, a Senior Lecturer with the Department of Computer Science and Digital Technologies at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. Previously, he was a Senior Scientist (2012-2015) with Civolution Technology (a combining synergy of Philips Content Identification and Thomson STS), a Staff Member (2010-2012) with the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI), a Senior Researcher (2005-2010) with the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e) in Netherlands, and a Research Assistant (2002) at Internet Media group of Microsoft Research Asia, China. During the periods of his employment in Netherlands, he actively participated in European projects, including ITEA CANDELA project, ITEA CANTATA (topic leader) project and FP7 FIRESENSE project.

Prof. Han’s research interests include Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. He has written and co-authored over 150 papers including 3 invited papers in these areas. He is an Associate Editor of Elsevier Neurocomputing and an Editorial Board Member of Springer Multimedia Tools and Applications. He served as TPC member, Session Chair, and the reviewer for various conferences and journals. He has been (lead) Guest Editor for five international journals, such as IEEE-T-SMCB, IEEE-T-NNLS, Pattern recognition letters and Neurocomputing. Since 2009, he is a voting member of IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee (MMTC). Since 2012, he has been a member of IEEE Industry DSP Technology Standing Committee. Apart from publishing scientific articles, Prof. Han also dedicates to transferring the academic achievements to commercial products. During his employment with TU/e, his software (C implementation of the proposed algorithm) has been commercialized and utilized by a start-up company. During the period of working in Civolution, his Audio Fingerprinting algorithm was implemented in SyncNow product, which won several industrial awards.

I always look for Master students, Ph.D students and Visiting research fellows working in the fields of video content analysis, computer vision, and multimedia security.
