Associate Professor, Department of Electronic and Information Engineering
Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
Ngai-Fong Law received the BEng degree with first class Honours from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, in 1993 and a PhD degree from the University of Tasmania, Australia, in 1997, both in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. She is currently an associate professor in Electronic and Information Engineering Department, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong. Her research interests include signal and image processing, wavelet transform, image enhancement and compression. Dr. Law has published 56 research papers, 27 of which appeared in archival international journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Image Processing and Pattern Recognition. Recently she has also extended her study into a new area on bioinformatics, working on gene expression and DNA sequence analysis. Novel results for gene expression data analysis and efficient biclustering algorithms have been achieved and published in recent issues of international journals with good attention from peers, such as a recent paper in 2008 has been classified as a ‘highly access’ article in BMC Bioinformatics journal which has an impact factor of 3.49.
Research interest: image and signal processing, wavelet transform, image retrieval, gene expression data analysis.
