Biography:


Chang Wen Chen has been a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, since 2008. Previously, he was Allen S. Henry Endowed Chair Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Florida Institute of Technology, from 2003 to 2007. He was on the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Missouri - Columbia from 1996 to 2003 and at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, from 1992 to 1996. From 2000 to 2002, he served as the Head of the Interactive Media Group at the David Sarnoff Research Laboratories, Princeton, NJ. He has also consulted with Kodak Research Labs, Microsoft Research, Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and Air Force Rome Laboratories.

He received his BS from University of Science and Technology of China in 1983, MSEE from University of Southern California in 1986, and Ph.D. from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992. He and his students have received seven Best Paper Awards or Best Student Paper Awards over the past two decades. He has also received several research and professional achievement awards, including the Sigma Xi Excellence in Graduate Research Mentoring Award in 2003, Alexander von Humboldt Research Award in 2009, and the State University of New York at Buffalo Exceptional Scholar – Sustained Achievement Award in 2012. He was elected an IEEE Fellow for his contributions in digital image and video processing, analysis, and communications and an SPIE Fellow for his contributions in electronic imaging and visual communications.
