Dan Grois received Ph.D. degree at the Communication Systems Engineering Department, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Israel, 2011. From 2011 to 2013, Dan was a Senior Researcher at the Communication Systems Engineering Department, BGU. Starting from the middle of 2013, Dan is a Senior Researcher at the Video Coding & Analytics Department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications - Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), Germany. Dan is an author and co-author of more than 40 publications in the area of image/video coding and data processing, which have been presented at top-tier international conferences, and published in various scientific journals, books, etc. In addition, Dan is a referee of top-tier conferences and international journals, such as the IEEE Trans. in Image Processing, IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, IEEE Trans. on Multimedia, IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing, IEEE Trans. on Broadcasting, etc. In 2013, Dan also served as a Guest Editor of the SPIE Optical Engineering journal.
During his academic carrier, Dan was granted various fellowships, including Kreitman Fellowships and the ERCIM Alain Bensoussan Fellowship, which was provided by the FP7 Marie Curie Actions COFUND Programme. In addition, Dan was a Fellow in the PROVISION ITN project, which is a part of the European Union’s Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions of the European Commission.
Dan is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Member of the ACM society. Dan’s research interests include image and video coding and processing, video coding standards, particularly H.265/MPEG High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), region-of-interest scalability, computational complexity and bit-rate control, network communication and protocols, and future multimedia applications/systems.
