Dr Jinchang Ren

Senior Lecturer

Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Personal statement

Dr Ren is a Senior Lecturer in the Centre for Signal and Image Processing (CeSIP), Dept. of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Strathclyde. Before joined Strathclyde in Dec. 2010, he took several research positions in School of Informatics, the University of Bradford, Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP), University of Surrey, Digital Imaging Research Centre (DIRC), Kingston University and ICCAVE, University of Abertay.

His research interests include: visual computing; computer vision; content-based image/video analysis and understanding; machine learning, human-computer interaction; visual surveillance; archive restoration; motion estimation; large scale data analysis and visualization e.g. hyperspectral imagery and medical data, intelligent multimedia information processing. His work has been supported by NERC, EPSRC, RSE, NSFC (China), industrial partners and internal funding.

Dr. Ren has published over 150 peer-reviewed research papers in prestigious international journals and conferences, including IEEE Trans. Image Processing, IEEE Trans. Circuits & Systems for Video Technology, IEEE Trans. Multimedia, IEEE Trans. System Man and Cybernetics, IEEE Trans. Broadcasting, Computer Vision and Image Understanding, etc.

He acts as an Associate Editor of two international journals, Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing (with Springer) and International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (IJPRAI), and also guest editor for several other journals. He is also a reviewer for a number of premier journals in this field, including IEEE Transactions T-PAMI, T-IP, T-CSVT, T-MM, T-SMC and other journals like Computer Vision and Image Understanding, and Pattern Recognition et al. He also involves as co-organizer or program committee of a number of international conferences and workshops.
