Bobby Shackouls Professor



Biographical Information


Dr. Qian (Jenny) Du received B. S. and M. S. degrees from Beijing Institute of Technology, and M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from University of Maryland Baltimore County in 1998 and 2000, respectively, all in electrical engineering. She was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Texas A&M University-Kingsville from 2000-2004. She joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Mississippi State University (MSU) in Fall 2004, where she is currently Bobby Shackouls Professor.


Dr. Du's research field is digital image processing and its application to remote sensing problems with an expertise on hyperspectral image exploitation. The research she has conducted covers almost all the topics in remote sensing image processing and analysis, such as target detection, anomaly detection, change detection, supervised/unsupervised/semi-supervised classification, spectral unmixing, endmember extraction, dimensionality reduction, band selection, multisource data/feature/decision fusion, real-time processing, parallel computing, data compression, registration and mosaicking, sharpening, visualization, etc. Her research interests also include image super-resolution and neural networks.


Dr. Du is an active member of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), American Society of Photogrammetric & Remote Sensing (ASPRS), and the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS). She was a board member of CPGIS (2019-2020). She was the Co-Chair for Data Fusion Technical Committee of IEEE GRSS (2009−2013), and Chair for Remote Sensing and Mapping Technical Committee of IAPR (2010−2014).


Dr. Du is a Fellow of SPIE and IEEE.


Dr. Du received 2023 SEC Faculty Achievement Award.


Dr. Du is named to 2021, 2022 and 2023 Highly Cited Researchers list from Clarivate Analytics.


She will be the new Editor-in-Chief for the SPIE Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (JARS), starting in January 2024. Previously, she was the Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (J-STARS) in 2016−2020.


Dr. Du is the General Chair for the 4th IEEE GRSS Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing: Evolution in Remote Sensing (WHISPERS) in Shanghai, China, in 2012, the 7th IAPR Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Remote Sensing (PRRS) in Tsukuba Science City, Japan, in 2012, and the 8th IAPR PRRS Workshop in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2014.  She is the General Co-Chair for the 10th International Workshop on the Analysis of Multitemporal Remote Sensing Images in Shanghai, China, in 2019. She is also the Technical Co-Chair for the 8th International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2019. Dr. Du will be the Technical Co-Chair for the IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) in Washington D.C. in 2026.
