Personal Profile

Yanni Dong received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Wuhan University, Wuhan, China, in 2012 and 2017, respectively. 

I am currently an associate professor with Institute of Geophysics and Geomatics, China University of Geosciences, and also a Hong Kong Scholar with the Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong. My research interests include distance metric learning, hyperspectral image processing and pattern recognition.

I am a reviewer of more than twenty international journals, including the IEEE TCybern, TGRS, TIP, TNNLS,  ISPRS, PR. She is also the PC Member of IJCAI and AAAI.
