CHAIRMANS:

Assoc. Prof. Wen Zhang, College of Meteorology and Oceanography, National University of Defense Technology, Changsha, China

Biodata: Wen Zhang is an Associate Professor of College of Meteorology and Oceanography, National University of Defense Technology, Changsha, China. She received the B.S. degree in Physics from Central China Normal University (CCNU) in 2003. She received the Master degree and the Ph.D. degree in Optical Engineering from National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) in 2005 and 2012, respectively. She was a Joint Ph.D candidate in University of Leeds, UK from 2008 to 2010. Since 2012, She has been working as a lecturer in NUDT. She has been involved in many national projects. She also co-authored over 40 publications (journals and conferences), and has been a reviewer for journals and conferences, too. She is a member of Acoustical Society of China (ASC). Dr. Zhang’s current research mainly focused on underwater acoustics, ocean exploration and signal processing arising from ocean. She is particularly interested in exploring machine learning by exploiting acoustic and ocean data to get interesting outcomes. In recent years, she has been actively working on array signal processing, adaptive beamforming, interference suppression, signal detection and estimation, spectrum analysis, and time series analysis. She is also interested in aeroacoustics and holds a national patent in shot detection and counting. She also got the third prize in the 2018 National Teaching Competition.
