Biography of guest speakers
Brian Funt is Professor of Computing Science at Simon Fraser University where he has been since 1980. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science specializing in Artificial Intelligence from the University of British Columbia in 1976 followed by a post-doc at Stanford. His research focus is on computational approaches to modelling and understanding visual perception generally and color in particular. He serves on the board of the Colour Research Society of Canada and is a regular contributor to the CIC and AIC colour conferences. He has authored roughly 200 papers, the majority of which concern colour.
Sergio Nascimento is an Associate Professor with aggregation of physics at Minho University, Portugal, where he teaches optics, vision sciences, and colour science. His research focuses on colorimetry and colour vision, in particular applications of spectral imaging, colour constancy and colour rendering, colour in art and models of colour vision. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Color Vision Society and topical editor for colour vision of the Journal of the Optical Society of America A.
Youngshin Kwak is an Assistant Professor at the School of Design and Human Engineering, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST). She received her BSc (physics) and MSc (physics) degrees in 1995 and 1997 from Ewha Womans University, Seoul, South Korea. After completing her PhD studies at the Colour & Imaging Institute, University of Derby, UK, in July 2003, she worked for Samsung Electronics, South Korea. Since February 2009, she has been working as the professor at the School of Design and Human Engineering, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), South Korea. Her main research interests include human color perception, color emotion, visual appearance, and the quality of 2D and 3D images.
Li-Chen Ou is an Associate Professor at the Graduate Institute of Colour and Illumination Technology, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taiwan. He has been the Division Secretary of CIE Division 1: Vision and Colour since 2015 and the Chair of CIE technical committee TC1-86 “Models of colour emotion and harmony” since 2011. Dr. Ou received a B.Eng. from National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan in 1995, an M.A. from National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan in 1997, and a Ph.D. from the Colour and Imaging Institute, University of Derby, UK in 2004. His areas of interest include colour science, colour psychology and lighting design.
