Shenghua Gao is an associate professor at Shanghaitech University, China. He received the B.E. degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2008, and received the Ph.D. degree from the Nanyang Technological University in 2012. From Jun 2012 to Aug 2014, he worked as a research scientist in UIUC Advanced Digital Sciences Center in Prof Yi Ma's group, Singapore. From Jan 2015 to June 2015, he visited UC Berkeley as a visiting professor, hosted by Prof Jitendra Malik. His research interests include computer vision and machine learning. He has published more than 50 papers on image and video understanding in many top-tier international conferences and journals. He also served as a chair for some workshops in CVPR2017, ACCV2014, ACCV2016, and area chair in ICCV2019. He also served as the Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (IF:3.558) and Neurocomputing (IF:3.224). His work on personalized saliency detection was nominated as outstanding student award (runner-up) in IJCAI 2017. He was awarded the Microsoft Research Fellowship in 2010, and ACM Shanghai Young Research Scientist in 2015.
