Huifang Sun received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Harbin Engineering Institute (Harbin Engineering University now), Harbin, China in 1967, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada. In 1986 he jointed Fairleigh Dickinson University, Teaneck, New Jersey, as an Assistant Professor and promoted to an Associate Professor in 1990. From 1990 to 1995 he was with the David Sarnoff Research Center (Sarnoff Corp), Princeton, New Jersey, as a member of technical staff and later promoted to Technology Leader of Digital Video Technology. He joined Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), in 1995 as a Senior Principal Technical Staff and was promoted as Deputy Director in 1997, Vice President and MERL Fellow in 2003 and now as MERL Fellow. He holds 66 U.S. patents and has authored or co-authored 2 books as well as more than 150 journal and conference papers. For his contributions on HDTV development he obtained 1994 Sarnoff technical achievement award. He also obtained the best paper award of IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics in 1993, the best paper award of International Conference on Consumer Electronics in 1997 and the best paper award of IEEE Transaction on CSVT in 2003. He was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transaction on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology and the Chair of Visual Processing Technical Committee of IEEE Circuits and System Society. He is an IEEE Life Fellow. He also served as a guest professor of Peking University, Tianjin University, Shanghai Jiaotong University (Guest Researcher) and several other universities in China.
