Mi Jiang is a Professor in Sun Yat-sen Univerisy. He received the B.S. degree in computational mathematics at the Nanjing University of Technology and the M.S. degree from the Central South University, where he started his studies on Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR). Since 2009, he has been working towards his Ph.D. at the Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, with emphasis on InSAR coherence estimation. During this research, he worked as a guest Ph.D. student at TU-Delft, The Netherlands (2013).

Mi was a research associate (2014) and a postdoctoral fellow (2015) in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where he focused on deformation monitoring for distributed scatterers (DS) using multi-source SAR imagery. His current interest involves the field of statistical inference with an emphasis on time-series InSAR data processing, including DS interferometry, urban change detection under Markov random field framework and land cover mapping using both radar and multispectral datasets.
