Prof. Zhang graduated in Computer Science from Peking University and received his M.Sc and Ph.D degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) in 1983 and 1985, respectively. From 1986 to 1988 he was a postdoctoral fellow at Tsinghua University and became an associate professor at Academia Sinica , Beijing, China.

In 1988, he joined University of Windsor , Ontario, Canada, as a Visiting Research Fellow in Electrical Engineering. He received his second Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Waterloo , Ontario, Canada, in 1994. After that, he was an associate professor in City University of Hong Kong. Currently, he is a professor in Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Prof. Zhang is a founder and director of both Biometrics Technology Centres supported by UGC/CRC, Hong Kong Government, and National Nature Scientific Foundation (NSFC) of China, respectively. He is also an Adjunct Professor in University of Waterloo, Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and HIT. In addition, He is a founder and Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Image and Graphics , and an Associate Editor over ten journals, including IEEE Transaction on SMC, Pattern Recognition, International Journal of Pattern Recognition & Artificial Intelligence, and International Journal of Robotics and Automation.

Prof. Zhang has been listed in 1999 Marquis Who's who in the World (16th). So far, he has been published over 180 papers including seven books around his research areas, such as Parallel VLSI Neural System Design (Springer, 1999); Automated Biometrics: Technologies and Systems (Kluwer, 2000);
Data Management and Internet Computing for Image/Pattern Analysis (Kluwer, 2001); Neural Networks and Systolic Array Design (World Scientific, 2002); Biometrics Solutions for Authentication in an e-World (Kluwer, 2002). He has been given many keynotes or invited talks or tutorial lectures, as well as served as many program/organizing committees at international conferences in recent years. In addition, he has developed some applied systems and received several recognisable project awards. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
