Asst Prof Wen Bihan

Nanyang Assistant Professor, School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Asst Prof Wen Bihan

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 March 2019 and now is a Nanyang Assistant Professor. His research interests span areas of machine learning, computational imaging, computer vision, image and video processing, and big data applications.

He is an elected member of the IEEE Computational Imaging (CI) Technical Committee. He regularly serves as the Area Chairs for ICIP and ICASSP, and the program committees or reviewers for top AI conferences (e.g., NIPS, ICML, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, IJCAI, AAAI). He also co-organized the LCI workshop at ICCV 2019, and the MIPR 2019 as the Session Chairs. He was the recipient of the 2016 Yee Fellowship, and the 2012 Professional Engineers Board (PEB) Gold Medal.
