Jingdong Chen (M’99–SM’09) received the Ph.D. degree in pattern recognition and intelligence control from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, in 1998.
From 1998 to 1999, he was with ATR Interpreting Telecommunications Research Laboratories, Kyoto, Japan, where he conducted research on speech synthesis, speech analysis, as well as objective measurements for evaluating speech synthesis. He then joined the Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia, where he engaged in research on robust speech recognition and signal processing. From 2000 to 2001, he worked with ATR Spoken Language Translation Research Laboratories on robust speech recognition and speech enhancement. From 2001 to 2009, he was a member of Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey, working on acoustic signal processing for telecommunications. He subsequently joined WeVoice Inc. in New Jersey, as the Chief Scientist. He is currently a Professor with the Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, China. He has coauthored 12 monograph books including Fundamentals of Signal Enhancement and Array Signal Processing, (Wiley, 2017), Design of Circular Differential Microphone Arrays (Springer, 2015), Study and Design of Differential Microphone Arrays(Springer, 2013), Noise Reduction in Speech Processing (Springer, 2009), Microphone Array Signal Processing (Springer, 2008), and Acoustic MIMO Signal Processing (Springer, 200 ), etc. His research interests include acoustic signal processing, adaptive signal processing, speech enhancement, adaptive noise/echo control, microphone array signal processing, signal separation, and speech communication
Dr. Chen was an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUDIO, SPEECH, AND LANGUAGE PROCESSING from 2008 to 2014 and as a technical committee (TC) member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) TC on Audio and Electroacoustics from 2007 to 2009. He is currently a member of the IEEE SPS TC on Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing, and a member of the editorial advisory board of the Open Signal Processing Journal. He was the General Co-Chair of ACM WUWNET 2018 and IWAENC 2016, the Technical Program Chair of the IEEE TENCON 2013, a Technical Program Co-Chair of IEEE WASPAA 2009, IEEE ChinaSIP 2014, IEEE ICSPCC 2014, and IEEE ICSPCC 2015, and helped organize many other conferences. He received the 2008 Best Paper Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society (with Benesty, Huang, and Doclo), the Best Paper Award from the IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics in 2011 (with Benesty), the Bell Labs Role Model Teamwork Award twice, respectively, in 2009 and 2007, the NASA Tech Brief Award twice, respectively, in 2010 and 2009, and the Young Author Best Paper Award from the 5th National Conference on Man-Machine Speech Communications in 1998. He has coauthored a paper for which his Ph.D. student, Chao Pan, received the IEEE R10 (Asia-Pacific Region) Distinguished Student Paper Award (First Prize) in 2016. He was also a recipient of the Japan Trust International Research Grant from the Japan Key Technology Center in 1998 and the “Distinguished Young Scientists Fund” from the National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2014.
