Biography

Jie Shen obtained his BEng degree in Information Engineering from Zhejiang University in 2005. He then worked as a research assistant in National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition, Institute of Automation, ChineseAcademy of Sciences until 2007. He received his MSc degree in Advanced Computing and his PhD degree from Department of Computing, Imperial College London in 2008 and 2014, respectively. During his postgraduate study, Jie Shen mainly worked on the software and hardware infrastructure for multi-modal human-computer/robot interaction (HCI/HRI) systems. His work, the HCI^2 Framework, has been used as the system integration framework in EU FP7 FROG and EU FP7 TERESA projects and he has built the data collection system for the MAHNOB-HCI-Tagging database and the SEWA database, Jie Shen’s current research focuses on affect-sensitive human-robot interaction and cloud-based affective computing systems. A demo from his recent work is shown below. 

Research Themes:

HCI:
Integration platform for development of human-centered interfaces, Affect-sensitive HCI
