He received the BSc, MSc and PhD degrees, all in automatic control from Zhejiang University, China and the Dr.-Ing. degree from Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. He was Principal Scientist and Group Leader at the Honda Research Institute Europe, Germany before he was appointed Chair in Computational Intelligence at University of Surrey in June 2010. He was Associate Lecturer, Lecturer and Associate Professor with the Electrical Engineering Department, Zhejiang University from 1991 to 1996. His main research interests include computational modeling of evolution, learning and development in biology, and bio-inspired approaches to optimization, learning and self-organisation. He has published over 150 journal and conference papers and was granted 7 US/EU/Japan patents. His papers have reported over 6,000 citations (according to Google Scholar). Since he joined Surrey in June 2010, he has successfully attracted fundings from EU FP7, UK EPSRC, and industries, including Santander, Bosch UK, HR Wallingford, Intellas UK Ltd, Aero Optimal and Honda. He is also a member of the European GARTEUR Action Group "Surrogate-based Global Optimization Methods in Aerodynamic Design".
Professor Jin is Vice President for Technical Activities of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (2014-2015) and a Distinguished Lecturer (2013-2015) of IEEE. He was an AdCom member (2012-2013), a member of the Award Committee (2012-2013) and Chair (2011-2012) of the Intelligent Systems Applications Technical Committee of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of BioSystems, the IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (previously IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, Part B: Cybernetics), the IEEE Transactions on Nanobioscience, IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine, the Soft Computing Journal and the International Journal of Fuzzy Systems. He is an Editorial Board Member of the Evolutionary Computation Journal (since 2014). He is a past Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, the IEEE Transactions on Systems, man and Cybernetics, Part C: Applications and Reviews, and the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology. He was the founding General Co-Chair of the 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Multi-Criterion Decision-Making, and the founding General Co-Chair of 2011 and 2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Dynamic and Uncertain Environments. He is the General Chair of the 2012 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. He has delivered over 14 Keynote speeches at international conferences on morphogenetic robotics and morphogenetic self-organizing systems, developmental neural computation, modeling and analysis of gene regulatory networks, evolutionary optimization in dynamic and uncertain environments and multi-objective machine learning.
Professor Jin is a member of Peer Review College and Review Panelist of EPSRC, UK, a member of Computer Science Review Panel, Academy of Finland, an Evaluator/Panel member of EU FP7 FET / Human Brain Project, a Peer Reviewer of Italian Evaluation of Research Quality exercise (VQR 2004-2010), and a Grant reviewer for many funding agencies, including the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK), the Levehulme Trust (UK), the Marsden Fund (New Zealand), Killam Fellowship Program (Canada), the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, Czech Science Foundation, Cyprus Research Promotion Fundation, FWF (Austria), and the European Science Foundation.
He is a Fellow of British Computer Society, Senior Member of IEEE and Member of INNS.
