Stan Z. Li received his B.Eng from Hunan University, China, M.Eng from National University of Defense Technology, China, and PhD degree from Surrey University, UK. He is currently a professor at the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition and the director of the Center for Biometrics and Security Research (CBSR), Institute of Automation (CASIA), and the director of the Center for Visual Internet of Things Research (VIOT), Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was elevated to IEEE Fellow in 2009. 

His research interest includes pattern recognition and machine learning, image and vision processing, face recognition, and video analytics. He has published over 300 papers in international journals and conferences, and authored and edited 8 books including "Markov Random Field Models in Image Analysis" (Springer, 1st edition 1995, 2nd edition 2001, 3rd edition 2009), "Handbook of Face Recognition" (Springer, 1st edition 2005, 2nd edition 2011),and Encyclopedia of Biometrics (Springer Reference Work, 1st edition 2010,2nd edition 2014). He served as an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence and a co-chair of International Conference on Biometrics 2007 and 2009, and has been involved in organizing other international conferences and workshops in the fields of his research interest. 

Stan Z. Li developed the EyeCU face recognition system he developed at Microsoft Research Asia was demonstrated by Bill Gate on a CNN interview. The AuthenMetric face recognition system and intelligent video surveillance system have been deployed in several national projects, including Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Shanghai 2010 World Expo, and immigration control at China borders. He is a co-chair of SAC/TC100/SC2 for biometrics standardization in China and delivered a plenary speech on Biometrics in China at ISO/IEC JTC1/SC37 on behalf of the China National Body.
