Yun-Qing Shi has joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Newark, NJ since 1987, and is currently a professor there. He obtained his B.S. degree and M.S. degree from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China; his Ph.D. degree from the University of Pittsburgh, PA. His research interests include multimedia data hiding, forensics and security (robust watermarking, reversible data hiding, authentication, steganography and steganalysis, tampering detection, computer graphics classification from photographic images, camera identification, detection of double JPEG/MPEG compression), visual signal processing and communications (motion analysis, video compression and transmission), applications of image processing, computer vision and pattern recognition to industrial automation and biomedical engineering, theory of multidimensional systems and signal processing (robust stability of linear systems, 2-D spectral factorization, 2-D/3-D interleaving). Prior to entering graduate school, he had industrial experience in a radio factory as a principal design and test engineer in numerical control manufacturing and electronic broadcasting devices. Some of his research projects have been supported by several federal and New Jersey State funding agencies, and some industrial companies. 

He is an author/coauthor of more than 300 papers in his research areas, a book on Image and Video Compression, three book chapters on Image Data Hiding, one book chapter on Steganalysis, and one book chapter on Digital Image Processing. He has edited nine issues of LNCS Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security by Springer, and more than 10 proceedings of international workshops and conferences. He holds 29 awarded US patents (most of these have been licensed to third party by NJIT). In addition to paper presentation in workshops/conferences, he has delivered more than 120 invited talks around the world and 18 three-hour tutorials, and is currently a Distinguished Lecture of ASPIPA (Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Association). At NJIT, he has guided 16 Ph.D. and 30 M.S. students, and 27 visiting scholars. He is a member of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS)'s Technical Committee of Visual Signal Processing and Communications, Technical Committee of Multimedia Systems and Applications, a member of IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS)’s Technical Committee of Information Forensics and Security, an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, and a fellow of IEEE for his contribution to Multidimensional Signal Processing since 2005. 

He was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Part II, an editorial member of International Journal of Image and Graphics (World Scientific), the guest editor of special issue on Image Data Hiding for International Journal of Image and Graphics, the guest editor of special issue on Multimedia Signal Processing for Journal of VLSI Signal Processing Systems, the guest editor of special issue on Image Sequence Processing for International Journal of Imaging Systems and Technology, a formal reviewer of the Mathematical Reviews, a contributing author in the area of Signal and Image Processing for the Comprehensive Dictionary of Electrical Engineering (CRC), an IEEE CASS Distinguished Lecturer, a member of IEEE Signal Processing Society's Technical Committee of Multimedia Signal Processing, the chair of Signal processing Chapter of IEEE North Jersey Section from a co-general chair of IEEE 2002 International Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP02), a co-technical chair of IEEE 2005 International Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP05), a co-chair of Technical Program Committee of International Workshop on Digital-forensics and Watermarking (IWDW) 2006,07,09,10,11,12,13 and 14, and the chair of Technical Program Committee of IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo 2007 (ICME07). He obtained Innovators Award 2010 by New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame (NJIHOF) for Innovations in Digital Forensics and Security. His US patent 7,457,341 entitled "System and Method for Robust Reversible Data Hiding and Data Recovery in the Spatial Domain" won 2010 Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award by Research and Development Council of New Jersey.
