|Dr. Shoushun Chen received his B.S. degree from Peking University, M.E. degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences and Ph.D degree from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2000, 2003 and 2007, respectively. He held a post-doctoral research fellowship in the Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology for one year after graduation. From February 2008 to May 2009 he was a post-doctoral research associate within the Department of Electrical Engineering, Yale University. In July 2009, he joined Nanyang Technological University as an assistant professor.|
Before joining NTU, Dr. Chen had been actively involved in a number of research projects related to VLSI implementation of microprocessor, circuits and systems design for vision sensor, algorithmic design for image processing. In Chinese Academy of Sciences, Dr. Chen was a key backend designer of "Loongson-1"(龙芯一号) CPU which is the first general purpose CPU designed in China. In Hong Kong, his research was mainly related to design and VLSI implementation of ultra-low power and wide dynamic range CMOS image sensors using time encoding techniques and asynchronous readout strategies. At Yale, he proposed a bio-inspired human posture recognition algorithm and his work was toward a combination of smart vision sensors and energy-efficient algorithm.
Dr. Chen is a member of IEEE. He serves as a technical committee member of Sensory Systems, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS); Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal; Associate Editor of Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications; Program Director (Smart Sensors) of VIRTUS, IC Design Centre of Excellence; Regular reviewer for a number of international conferences and journals such as TVLSI, TCAS-I/II, TBioCAS, TPAMI, Sensors, TCSVT, etc.
