Z. Jane Wang

 


Currently I am a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, working in the broad areas of statistical signal processing theory and applications (with applications to multimedia security, wireless communications, and biomedical problems).


Biographical Sketch:

Z. Jane Wang (M02, F17) received the B.Sc. degree from Tsinghua University, China, in 1996, with the highest honor, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Connecticut in 2000 and 2002 (under the supervision of Dr. Peter Willett), respectively, all in electrical engineering. While at the University of Connecticut, Dr. Wang received the Outstanding Engineering Doctoral Student Award. From 2002 to 2004, she has been Research Associate of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park, working with Dr. K. J. Ray Liu's group. Since Aug. 1, 2004, she has been with the Department Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Canada. Her research interests are in the broad areas of statistical signal processing, with applications to information security, biomedical imaging, genomic, and wireless communications.

 

She co-received the 2004 EURASIP Best Paper Award and 2005 Best Paper Award from IEEE Signal Processing Society, and a Junior Early Career Scholar Award from Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of British Columbia in 2005. She co-edited a book Genomic Signal Processing and Statistics (Hindawi Publishing Co., 2005) and co-authored a book Multimedia Fingerprinting Forensics for Traitor Tracing (Hindawi Publishing Co., 2005). She has been the chair and founder of the IEEE Vancouver SP chapter. She was Finance Chair of IEEE International Workshop on Genomic Signal Processing and Statistics 2005 (GENSIPS05), Local Arrangement Chair of 2003 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man & Cybernetics (SMC03), Co-vice Chair of the Second International Symposium on Multimedia over Wireless (ISMW2006), the Publicity Chair of 2006 International Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP2006), the Registration Chair of MMSP2012, the Finance Chair of ICASSP2013, the Co-Technical Chair of GlobalSIP2017, and the Co-General Chair of MMSP2018.

Area of Interest:

My present research interests are in the broad areas of statistical signal processing theory and applications (especially on signal detection, multimedia security, bio-medical imaging, bioinformatics, and wireless communications).  More specifically:

  • Signal (transient) detection and parameter estimation;
  • Segmentation and classification of time-series for the purpose of recognition;
  • Monitoring industrial processes, for fault detection and condition-based maintenance.
  • Multimedia over wireless channels
  • Signal processing for communications
  • Multimedia security via digital fingerprinting
  • Biomedical signal processing and modeling
  • Genomic signal processing and statistics
