Biography

Joel Than Chia Ming received his Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman in 2013. He later received MPhil from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in 2015. He earned his doctoral degree from the same university in 2019, working in the area of deep learning and medical imaging classification. He then became a post-doctoral researcher in the same year in UTM before joining Swinburne University Technology, Sarawak, as a lecturer in 2020.

Joel has won several awards in his post graduate career. In 2015, He won Best Student Paper in the IEEE Student Symposium in Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (ISSBES) conference. He won the Best Master Thesis Award for IEEE Signal Processing Malaysia chapter in 2016. In the same year he also won the Best Master Student Award in Razak Faculty, UTM.  He also won the Best Paper Award in 2018 during the International Conference on BioSignal Analysis, Processing and Systems (ICBAPS) conference. In 2019, Joel won the 3-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition held during the IEEE International Conference on Signal and Image Processing Applications (ICSIPA) conference.
