Since I was awarded my Ph.D. in 1997 from Institute of Remote Sensing Applications, Chinese Academy of Sciences, I worked with Prof Qingyun Shi at Center for Information Science, Peking University for several years, as a lecturer then as an associate professor two years later. At the beginning of 2000, I worked as a visiting scientist with Prof Maria Petrou at CVSSP, University of Surrey. Also in 2000, I was selected as one of the winners of the National Excellent Doctoral Dissertations, China, by the Academic Degree Committee of the State Council and the Ministry of Education. In June 2001, I went to Queen Mary, University of London, and worked on the Prometheus project as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Yakup Paker. One year later, I was appointed as a lecturer. Since January 2006, I also have been a business fellow of London Technology Network.


I am the author of PLUS factorisation of matrices. As an expert in image coding, one of my techniques has been included in JPEG 2000, the new international standard for image coding.


I love my science, and I love my China (O=O).





My research interests are in image processing and computer graphics, especially focus on image coding and computer animation.
