Profile Summary

Dr. C.-C. Jay Kuo received the B.S. degree from the National Taiwan University, Taipei, in 1980 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 1985 and 1987, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering. From October 1987 to December 1988, he was Computational and Applied Mathematics Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since January 1989, he has been with the University of Southern California (USC). He is presently Director of the Signal and Image Processing Institute (SIPI) and Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the USC.
His research interests are in the areas of digital image/video analysis and modeling, multimedia data compression, communication and networking, and biological signal/image processing. Dr. Kuo has guided 105 students to their Ph.D. degrees and supervised 21 postdoctoral research fellows. Currently, his research group at the USC has around 30 Ph.D. students, which is one of the largest academic research groups in multimedia technologies. He is co-author of 186 journal papers, 804 conference papers and 10 books. He delivered over 460 invited lectures in conferences, research institutes, universities and companies.
Dr. Kuo is a Fellow of IEEE and SPIE. He is Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation (an Elsevier journal). He received the National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award (NYI) and Presidential Faculty Fellow (PFF) Award in 1992 and 1993, respectively. He received the Northrop Junior Faculty Research Award from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering in 1994. He was an IEEE Signal Processing Society Distinguished Lecturer in 2006, a recipient of the Okawa Foundation Research Award in 2007, the recipient of the Electronic Imaging Scientist of the Year Award in 2010, and the holder of the 2010-2011 Fulbright-Nokia Distinguished Chair in Information and Communications Technologies.
