Jan Larsen received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 1989 and 1994. 


Dr. Larsen is Professor of Computer Science and Complexity (as of January 1st 2016) at Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, DTU. Jan Larsen has authored and co-authored more than 150 papers and book chapters within the areas of machine learning, signal processing, and cognitive systems with application to audio, multimedia, sensor data, monitoring, biomedical, data/web-mining, and pattern recognition. According to Google Scholar, Jan Larsen’s research impact is as of December 5, 2016 summarized as follows: 3723 citations, h-index equal to 32, and i-10 index equal to 78. 


He has participated in more than ten national and international research and innovations programs and has served as reviewer for many international journals, conferences, publishing companies and research funding organizations. Currently he coordinates the strategic the research project CoSound (2012-2016) and participate as principal investigator in four other research projects. 

As regards synergistic activities, he took part in conference organizations, among others the IEEE Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing (formerly Neural Networks for Signal Processing) 1999-2015 and as Technical Program Chair of the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2010). He is director of the Danish Sound Innovation Network (2009-), past chair of the IEEE Machine Learning for Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2005-2007), and chair of IEEE Denmark Section's Signal Processing Chapter (2002-). He is a senior member of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Other professional committee participation includes Steering committee member of the Audio Signal Processing Network in Denmark, 2006-. Editorial Board Member of Signal Processing, Elsevier, 2006-2007; and guest editorships involves IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks; Journal of VLSI Signal Processing Systems; and Neurocomputing.
