Prof. Jun Li (Fellow, IEEE) received the B.S. degree in geographic information systems from Hunan Normal University, Changsha, China, in 2004, the M.E. degree in remote sensing from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Instituto de Telecomunicações, Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal, in 2011. She is a Full Professor with Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China, where she founded her own research group: Hyperspectral Calibration and Learning (HCL) in 2013. Since then, she has obtained several prestigious funding grants at the national and international level. She has published more than 160 journal citation report (JCR) papers (more than 100 in IEEE GRSS journals), 60 international conference papers, and a book chapter. She has received a significant number of citations to her published works, with many papers distinguished as “Highly Cited Papers” in Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science Essential Science Indicators (WoS-ESI). She was elevated to IEEE Senior Member status in 2016 and to IEEE Fellow status in 2020 “for contributions in hyperspectral image processing“. She has received other important awards and distinctions, including the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) Early Career Award in 2017.
Prof. Li has been an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (since 2019). She served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (2014- 2018). She has been a Guest Editor for several journals, including the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, the Proceedings of the IEEE, and the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing and Remote Sensing. She has also been an active reviewer for several journals, including the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, Pattern Recognition, Optical Engineering, Journal of Applied Remote Sensing, and Inverse Problems and Imaging. She is a GRSS Distinguished Lecturer since 2018. She was distinguished as a Best Reviewer of the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (in 2018) and the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (in 2015). She is currently an elected member of IEEE GRSS AdCom (2020- 2022) and was the Chair of the IEEE GRSS Fellow and Senior Member Search Committee in 2018 and 2019. She was a member of the IEEE GRSS Special Award Committee. She is the President of the GRSS Guangzhou Chapter (established in 2019). She assisted in the organization of GRSS Summer Schools (GR4S) in 2018 and 2019. She was a member of the IGARSS Student Paper Competition evaluation panel (in 2019), and was responsible for the allocation of Travel Grants for the IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) in 2019. She has given several talks under the IEEE GRSS Distiguished Lecture Program. She has been a Keynote Speaker in numerous GRSS-related conferences/symposia, and presented invited Keynote Talks and different GRSS events. In January 2021, she starts her term as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE J-STARS.
