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 2019 as a Nanyang Assistant Professor. His research interests span areas of machine learning, computational imaging, computer vision, image and video processing, AI model security and robustness, etc. 

Dr. Bihan Wen is an IEEE Senior Member, SubCommittee Chair of IEEE Computational Imaging (CI) TC, and an elected member of IEEE Visual Signal Processing and Communications (VSPC) TC. He is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (T-CSVT). He is currently a Guest Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (SPM), 2021-2023, IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing (JSTSP), 2023-2025, and Remote Sensing, 2023-2025. He served as the Publicity Chair of the IEEE Conference on AI (CAI) 2023, the Program Chair of the IEEE MIPR Conference 2022, 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 conferences such as ICIP, ICASSP, ICME, ISCAS, IJCAI, AAAI, etc. 

Dr. Bihan Wen received 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 Singapore Professional Engineers Board (PEB) Gold Medal. He won several paper awards, including the Best Paper Runner-Up from IEEE ICME 2020, the Best Paper Award from IEEE ICIEA 2023, and the Best Paper Award from IEEE MIPR 2023. He was ranked the World Top 2% Scientists in Artificial Intelligence, for the Year 2021 to 2023, consecutively, by Stanford University. He was awarded the IEEE CAS Society VSPC Rising Star (Runner-Up) 2023.
