Assoc Prof Pan, Sinno Jialin

Dr Sinno Jialin Pan is a Provost's Chair Associate Professor with the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2011. Prior to joining NTU, he was a scientist and Lab Head of text analytics with the Data Analytics Department, Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore from Nov. 2010 to Nov. 2014. He joined NTU as a Nanyang Assistant Professor (university named assistant professor) in Nov. 2014. He was named to "AI 10 to Watch" by the IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine in 2018. His research interests include transfer learning, and its applications to wireless-sensor-based data mining, text mining, sentiment analysis, and software engineering.
