Ke Chen received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in applied mathematics, respectively, from the Dalian University of Technology, China (1983), University of Manchester, UK (1986), and the University of Plymouth, UK (1990). He joined the University of Liverpool since 1993 after a 3-year Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Reading in Professor M J Baines' group. He is a Computational Mathematician specializing in developing novel and fast numerical algorithms for various scientific computing applications, as reflected in his recent research monograph ["Matrix preconditioning techniques and applications," Cambridge University Press, 2005]. He is the Director of a multidisciplinary research Centre for Mathematical Imaging Techniques (CMIT:www.liv.ac.uk/www/cmit) and a Professor of mathematical sciences at the University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK, where he heads the Computational Mathematics Group. His research interests are currently centered on developing effective solvers for variational image processing models taking the form of nonlinear optimizations or nonlinear partial differential equations, including image restoration, image inpainting, image segmentation, and registration.
