Biography

Chen Change Loy is a Research Assistant Professor in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is also a visiting scholar of Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. He received his PhD (2010) in Computer Science from the Queen Mary University of London (Vision Group). From Dec. 2010 to Mar. 2013, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Queen Mary University of London and Vision Semantics Limited.

His research interests include computer vision and pattern recognition, with focus on face analysis, deep learning, and visual surveillance. He has published more than 75 papers, including over 45 publications in main journals (e.g. TPAMI, IJCV, PR) and top conferences (e.g. ICCV, CVPR, ECCV). His journal paper on image super-resolution was selected as the 'Most Popular Article' by IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence from March 2016 to August 2016. It remains as one of the top 10 articles to date.

He was selected as an outstanding reviewer in ACCV 2014, BMVC 2017, and CVPR 2017. He serves as an Associate Editor of IET Computer Vision Journal and a Guest Editor of the International Journal of Computer Vision and Computer Vision and Image Understanding. He will serve as an Area Chair of ECCV 2018. He is a senior member of IEEE.
