Dr. Bihan Wen received the B.Eng. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in 2012, the MS and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), USA, in 2015 and 2018, respectively. He joined Nanyang Technological University in March 2019 and now is a Nanyang Assistant Professor. His research interests span areas of machine learning, computational imaging, computer vision, image and video processing, data analytics, etc. 

Dr. Bihan Wen is an elected member and subcommittee chair of the IEEE Computational Imaging (CI) Technical Committee. He is currently serving as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (T-CSVT), and MDPI Micromachines. He is also a Guest Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. He is the Program Chair of IEEE MIPR Conference 2022. He is the Lead Organizer of the LCI workshops at ICCV 2019 and 2021, and the IEEE SPACE webinar 2020-2021. He regularly serves as the Area Chair for IEEE ICIP, ICASSP and ICME, and the program committees for many AI conferences (e.g., NeurIPS, ICML, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, IJCAI, AAAI). He is the recipient of the 2022 Early Career Teaching Excellence Award and 2021 Inspirational Mentor for Koh Boon Hwee Award from NTU; the 2016 Yee Fellowship from UIUC; and the 2012 Professional Engineers Board (PEB) Gold Medal. One paper he co-authored won the Best Paper Runner-Up from IEEE ICME 2020.
