Prof. You Jia Jane, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
Prof. You is currently a professor in the Department of Computing at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Prof. You obtained her BEng. in Electronic Engineering from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 1986 and Ph.D in Computer Science from La Trobe University, Australia in 1992. She was a lecturer at the University of South Australia and senior lecturer (tenured) at Griffith University from 1993 till 2002. Prof. You was awarded French Foreign Ministry International Postdoctoral Fellowship in 1993 and worked on the project on real-time object recognition and tracking at Universite Paris XI. She also obtained the Academic Certificate issued by French Education Ministry in 1994.
Prof. You has worked extensively in the fields of image processing, medical imaging, computer-aided detection/diagnosis and pattern recognition. So far, she has more than 200 research papers published with over 3000 non-self citations. Prof. You is a principal investigator for two projects supported by Hong Kong Government ITF (Innovation Technology Fund) in 1999 and 2014 respectively, four projects funded by Hong Kong Government GRF (General Research Grant) during 1997-1999 and 2015, and many other grants in the capacity of co-investigator since she joined PolyU in late 1998. Prof. You is also a team member for three successful patents (one HK patent, two US patents) and three awards including Hong Kong Government Industrial Awards. Her recent work on retinal imaging has won a Special Prize and Gold Medal with Jury’s Commendation at the 39th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva (April 2011) and the second place in an international competition (SPIE Medical Imaging’2009 Retinopathy Online Challenge (ROC’2009)). Her research output on retinal imaging has been successfully led to technology transfer with clinical applications. Prof. You is also an associate editor of Pattern Recognition and other journals.
