Jingjing Chen is now a pre-tenured associate professor at the School of Computer Science, Fudan University. Before that, she was a postdoc research fellow at the School of Computing in National University of Singapore, working with Prof. Tat-Seng Chua. She received her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from City University of Hong Kong in July 2018, supervised by Prof. Chong-Wah Ngo. She received her master degree from Tianjin University in 2014, supervied by Prof. Xiaochun Cao and got her Bachelor degree in Wuhan University of Technology, in 2011.

Her research interest lies in the areas of diet tracking and nutrition estimation based on multi-modal processing of food images. Currently, she is focusing on cross modal recipe retrieval.
