Personal profile

Personal Statement

Wenzhi Liao is a Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Before joining in the University of Strathclyde, Dr. Liao was awarded a prestigious Fellowship from Flanders Research Foundation (FWO) to conduct fundamental and industrial research in Remote Sensing and Hyperspectral Imaging at Ghent University with IMEC (Leuven, Belgium). His research interests include Image Processing and Interpretation (ranging from remote sensing to microscopy), Multisensor Data Fusion and Pattern Recognition. In particular, he has coordinated several national and international projects, and successfully applied his developed methods in the fields of optical hyperspectral image restoration and interpretation, data fusion and classification of multi-modal remote sensing imagery for Earth observation, food sorting and precision agriculture. Dr. Liao won twice the Best Paper Challenge Awards as the first author in both 2013 and 2014 IEEE GRSS Data Fusion Contest.

Next to fundamental research and industrial applications, Dr. Liao an experienced supervisor and coach of several students both at Master and PhD levels. Dr. Liao is also serving as an Associate Editor for both the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, and IET Image Processing.
