Chen Change Loy received his PhD (2010) in Computer Science from the Queen Mary University of London (Vision Group). From Dec. 2010 – Mar. 2013, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Queen Mary University of London and Vision Semantics Limited, where he was involved in two European FP7 computer vision projects on security and surveillance using multi-camera CCTV systems, SAMURAI (2008-2011) and GETAWAY (2011-2014).

He is now a Research Assistant Professor in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is also a visiting scholar of Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. He is the Co-Principal Investigator of two large-scale projects supported by Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF), namely "Deep Learning-based Face Recognition on Cloud Computing Platform" (2015-2017), and "Intelligent Video Analysis for Crowd Management" (2014-2015).

His research interests include computer vision and pattern recognition, with focus on face analysis, deep learning, and visual surveillance. He has published more than 90 papers, including over 50 publications in main journals (SPM, TPAMI, IJCV) and top conferences (ICCV, CVPR, ECCV, NIPS). His journal paper on image super-resolution was selected as the `Most Popular Article' by IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence from March 2016 to August 2016. It remains as one of the top 10 articles to date. His current h-index is 38. He was selected as the outstanding reviewer of ACCV 2014, BMVC 2017, and CVPR 2017.

He currently serves as an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) and IET Computer Vision Journal. He also serves as an Area Chair of ECCV 2018 and BMVC 2018. He is a senior member of IEEE.
