Jian Zhang PhD, SMIEEE

Leader of Multimedia Data Analytics Lab at University of Technology Sydney (UTS)
 


Jian Zhang is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Engineering and IT at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). A/Prof Zhang earned his PhD from the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, the University of New South Wales in 1999.

A/Prof Zhang is the Director of the Multimedia Data Analytics Lab (MDAL) in the Global Big Data Technologies Centre (GBDTC) at UTS. His current research interests include 2D- and 3D-based computer vision, pattern recognition & data analytics, large-scale image and video content analytics, retrieval and mining, and multimedia and social media signal processing. From 1997 to 2003, he was with the Visual Information Processing Laboratory at Motorola Australian Research Centre (MARC) as a Principal Research Engineer and Research Manager of Visual Communications team. While at MARC, he worked on a range of research projects including image processing, video coding and communication, image segmentation, and multimedia content adaptation. From 2004 to 2011, he was a Principal Researcher and Project Leader at Data61 (formerly NICTA) Australia and a Conjoint Associate Professor at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, UNSW. He led three large NICTA research projects in the areas of computer vision, pattern recognition, and video surveillance content analytics.

A/Prof Zhang has co-authored more than 180 papers in top journals and refereed conference proceedings from his research output, and filed more than ten patents in the US, UK and Australia, including six US-issued patents. He has actively engaged with research collaboration with industry labs, supervised PhD research students, and developed new multimedia analytics courses at UTS. Since 2011, as a leading chief investigator in the Faculty of Engineering and IT, he has led more than 10 research projects with industry labs, whose total value exceeds A$ 3.5 million. The industry labs include Microsoft Research, Nokia Research Centre in Finland, Toshiba R/D in Japan and Australia, and Canon.

A/Prof Zhang is an IEEE Senior Member. He is a member of the Multimedia Systems & Applications Technical Committee (MSA-TC) and Visual Signal Processing and Communication Technical Committee (VSPC-TC) in IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CAS). He was also a member of the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP-TC) in the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He was the General Co-Chair and Technical Program Co-Chair of the International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) in 2012 and 2020 respectively, and the Technical Program Co-Chair and General Co-Chair of the IEEE Conference on Visual Communications and Image Processing in 2014 and 2019 respectively. He was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (2006 – 2015). Currently, he is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia and a Member of Technical Directions Board, IEEE Signal Processing Society.
