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 photography, 3D reconstruction, practical optimization, and sparse computation.

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 2011 and ICCV 2013. He was on the program committees of several major conferences, including ICCV, ECCV, and CVPR, 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 photography, 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.
