Curriculum Vitae

Prof. JIN Ya-Qiu


Ya-Qiu Jin graduated from Peking University, Beijing, China in 1970, and received the M.S., E.E., and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA in 1982, 1983 and 1985, respectively. All the degrees are from electrical engineering.
He was a Research Scientist with the Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc., Cambridge MA, USA (1985); a Research Associate with the City University of New York (1986-1987); a Visiting Professor with the University of York, U.K. (1993-1994) sponsored by the U.K. Royal Society; a Visiting Professor with the City University of Hong Kong (2001); and a Visiting Professor with Tohoku University, Japan (2005). He held the Senior Research Associateship at NOAA/NESDIS awarded by the USA National Research Council (1996). He is currently a Te-Pin Professor of Fudan University, Shanghai, China, and the founder Director of the Key Laboratory of Wave Scattering and Remote Sensing Information (MoE, Ministry of Education). He has been appointed as the Principal Scientist for the China State Key Basic Research Project (2001-2006) by the Ministry of National Science and Technology of China to lead the remote sensing program in China.
 He has published more than 610 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings and 12 books, including Electromagnetic Scattering Modeling for Quantitative Remote Sensing (World Scientific, 1994), Information of Electromagnetic Scattering and Radiative Transfer in Natural Media First volume 1983-2000 (Science Press, 2000), Theory and Approach for Information Retrieval from Electromagnetic Scattering and Remote Sensing (Springer, 2005)]. He is Editor of Wave Propagation, Scattering and Emission in Complex Media (World Scientific and Science Press, 2004) and Co-Editor of SPIE Volume 3503 Microwave Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere and Environment, and the book Selected Papers on Microwave Lunar Exploration in Chinese Chang’E-1 Project (Science Press, 2010). His main research interests include scattering and radiative transfer in complex natural media, microwave remote sensing, as well as theoretical modeling, information retrieval and applications in atmosphere, ocean, and Earth surfaces, and computational electromagnetics.
Dr. Jin is the IEEE Fellow, the member of IEEE GRSS AdCom, Chair of IEEE Fellow Evaluation Committee in GRSS, IEEE GRSS Distinguished Speaker, and an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (GRS). He received IEEE GRSS Education Award in 2010.
He is Co-Chair of Technical Committee of IGARSS2011, ISAPE2000 and 2010, and Chair of JURSE2009 and several international conferences. He is the Founder Chairman of IEEE GRSS Beijing Chapter (1998-2003) and received the appreciation for his notable service and contributions toward the advancement of IEEE professions from IEEE GRSS.
He received the China National Science Prize in 1993, the first-grade Science Prizes of MoE in 1992, 1996 and 2009, and the first-grade Guang-Hua Science Prize in 1993 among many other prizes.
