Prof. Siu is now Emeritus Professor, and was Chair Professor, Founding Director of Signal Processing Research Centre, Head of Electronic and Information Engineering Department and Dean of Engineering Faculty of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He is an expert in DSP, transforms, fast algorithms, machine learning, and conventional and deep learning approaches for super-resolution imaging, 2D and 3D video coding, object recognition and tracking. He has published 500 research papers (over 200 appeared in international journal papers), and edited three books. He has also 9 recent patents granted. Prof. Siu was an independent non-executive director (2000-2015) of a publicly-listed video surveillance company and convenor of the First Engineering/IT Panel of the RAE(1992/93) in Hong Kong. He is an outstanding scholar, with many awards, including the Best Teacher Award, the Best Faculty Researcher Award (twice) and IEEE Third Millennium Medal (2000). Prof. Siu has been Guest Editor/Subject Editor/Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and System II, Image Processing, Circuit & System for Video Technology, and Electronics Letters, and organized very successfully over 20 international conferences including IEEE society-sponsored flagship conferences, such as TPC Chair of ISCAS1997 and General Chair of ICASSP2003 and General Chair of ICIP2010. He was Vice-President, Chair of Conference Board and Core Member of Board of Governors (2012-2014) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and is now a member of the IEEE Educational Activities Board, IEEE Fourier Award for Signal Processing Committee (2018-2020) and some other IEEE committees.
