Where Are You now Debarati Mukherjee? - Catching up with our former Ph.D. student

on 11-07-2022

Debarati joined Nature Communications in July 2021. She talked with us about her new journey...

Debarati obtained her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Aveiro, Portugal.
As a researcher, she specialized in semiconductor fabrication and characterization techniques, with a particular focus on diamond thin films. She continued her post-doctoral work in the same area, at the Instituto de Telecomunicações, Lisbon, branching out to the fabrication of optical sensors that utilize polycrystalline diamond films as part of an interferometer. Her background covers mico- and nano-fabrication and characterization techniques, specifically for electronic materials. She handles manuscripts in the areas of electronics, optoelectronics, flexible electronics, and robotics.


Where Are You now Jun Li? - Catching up with our former Ph.D. student

on 11-04-2022

Jun Li was supervised by the late IT researcher José Bioucas-Dias. She talked with us about her journey...

She received her Ph.D. in 2011 in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), for her thesis “Discriminative Hyperspectral Image Segmentation”. She is currently a Professor at the School of Geography and Planning, Sun Yat-sen University, in Guangzhou (China), where she founded her research group on hyperspectral image analysis in 2013. Jun Li was elevated to IEEE Senior Member status in 2016 and is also serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (JSTARS).

The newly achieved status of IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields are deemed fitting for the prestigious grade elevation. In addition to this achievement, Jun Li has published a total of 69 journal citation report papers, 48 conference international conference papers, and one book chapter. Her research interests include remotely sensed hyperspectral image analysis, signal processing, supervised/semisupervised learning, and active learning.
