Biography

Dr. Rongjun Qin holds a joint position from Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering in Geomatics, and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Computer Vision.His cross-disciplinary background facilitates strong expertise in using images/videos to perform accurate localization and detection of objects. He has a wide interest in image/video processing, object recognition, image-based monitoring, multi-view and stereo-view camera based 3D vision, disaster responses using various types of image/video data.  His research seeks for computational solutions to various problems in accurately measuring static and moving objects in an urban context using imaging sensors such as aerial/UAV imagery, LiDAR, and satellite multispectral/hyperspectral images. Dr. Qin is the author of RSP (RPC stereo processor) and MSP (multi-stereo processor) used for reconstructing 3D information from 2D images with high quality. He obtained a B.Sc. in Computational Mathematics from Wuhan University , a second B.Eng in Electronics and Communication Engineering , M. Eng in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing from Wuhan University, and Ph.D. in Photogrammetry and remote sensing from ETH Zurich.
