Academic Profile

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, and big data applications. 

He is an elected member 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 an associate editor for Micromachines. He is the TPC Chair of the upcoming IEEE MIPR 2022. He co-organized the LCI workshop at ICCV 2019 and 2021, and the IEEE SPACE webinar. He regularly serves as the Area Chairs for IEEE ICIP, ICASSP and ICME, and the program committees for many AI conferences (e.g., NeurIPS, ICML, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, IJCAI, AAAI). He was the recipient of the 2016 Yee Fellowship and the 2012 Professional Engineers Board (PEB) Gold Medal. One paper he co-authored won the Best Paper Runner-Up from IEEE ICME 2020.
