Personal profile


Dr Xiaojun Chang is a faculty member at Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University Clayton Campus, Australia. He is also affiliated with Monash University Centre for Data Science. He is ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow between 2019-2021 (awarded in 2018). 

Before joining Monash, Dr Chang was a Postdoc Research Associate in School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Alex Hauptmann. He has spent most of his time working on exploring multiple signals (visual, acoustic, textual) for automatic content analysis in unconstrained or surveillance videos. Dr Chang's system has achieved top performance in various international competitions, such as TRECVID MED, TRECVID SIN, and TRECVID AVS. 

Dr. Chang received his Ph.D. degree in Centre for Artificial Intelligence & Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Technology Sydney, under the supervision of Prof. Yi Yang. During his PhD study, he was sequentially mentored by Prof. Feiping Nie and Yaoliang Yu. His research focus in this period was mainly on developing machine learning algorithms and apply them to multimedia analysis and computer vision.
