Jiaya Jia joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in September 2004 as an assistant professor and was appointed associate professor and professor in 2010 and 2015. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He was a visiting scholar at Microsoft Research Asia from March 2004 to August 2005 and conducted collaborative research at Adobe Systems in 2007. He leads the active research team at CUHK, composed of students and research fellows in computer vision and machine learning, focusing specifically on image/video understanding, computational imaging, motion and depth estimation, practical optimization, and advanced learning for visual content.

He currently serves as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI) and served as an area chair for ICCV and CVPR for several times. He was on (technical paper) program committees of major conferences in graphics and computational imaging, including ICCP, SIGGRAPH, and SIGGRAPH Asia, and co-chaired the Workshop on Interactive Computer Vision, in conjunction with ICCV 2007. He received the Young Researcher Award 2008 and Research Excellence Award 2009 from CUHK. He and his students won the best paper award in NPAR 2012. He is a senior member of the IEEE.

Jiaya Jia's research interests include computer vision, computational imaging, and machine learning. He keeps a good relationship with industry and various research labs, and values practical techniques that can be transferred to commercial systems.


⇒  Looking for new students, RAs, and capable postdocs to join the team in August 2016 working on exciting and innovative computer vision plus machine learning projects (with limited quota). Ninja programmers and brainstormers get extra credits. 


Try the robust and fast single-image blur removal software incorporating all our techniques.

Several our techniques are included in OpenCV library. See the details here.

Among the 70+ oral papers selected from 2145 submissions, we contribute two for upcoming CVPR 2016.

See our work accepted in ICCV 2015. The oral presentation was delivered by Xiaoyong Shen.
