|Dong Xu is currently an assistant professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. He received the B.Eng. and PhD degrees from the Electronic Engineering and Information Science Department, University of Science and Technology of China, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. During his PhD study, he worked at Microsoft Research Asia and The Chinese University of Hong Kong for more than two years. He also worked at Columbia University for one year as a postdoctoral research scientist. His research focuses on new theories, algorithms and systems for intelligent processing and understanding of visual data such as images and videos.
He has published more than 35 papers in top venues including T-PAMI, T-IP, T-CSVT, CVPR, ACM MM, ICML, and IJCAI. His publications have been cited in Google Scholar more than 800 times, and his H-Index in Google Scholar is 15. Since 2008, he has received over S$2.8M in research grant funding, from Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF), A*STAR, Ministry of Education (MOE), and Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA). Ph.D. students in his research group were awarded the prestigious MSRA Fellowship Awards in 2008 and 2009.
He is an associate editor of Neurocomputing (Elsevier) and he is an editorial board member of Journal of Multimedia (Academy). He has served as the guest editors of three special issues on video and event analysis in T-CSVT, CVIU and PRL. He has also served as the workshop co-chair of The ACM SIGMM Workshop on Social Media and The IEEE ICME Workshop on Visual Content Identification and Search, a Track Chair of ICME 2009, and a Theme Chair of PSIVT 2009
