Tom Fearn

Tom Fearn is Professor of Applied Statistics at University College London, UK. Before joining UCL in 1989 he worked for the Flour Milling and Baking Research Association (FMBRA) at Chorleywood, where he first began to calibrate NIR instruments (a 6-filter InfraAlyser 2.5) in1978.  His interest in NIR and in chemometrics more generally has continued to the present. As well as around 150 papers his publications include joint authorship of the books Practical NIR Spectroscopy, with Osborne and Hindle, and A User Friendly Guide to Multivariate Calibration and Classification, with Næs, Isaksson and Davies.  He is chemometrics editor of the Journal of Near Infrared Spectroscopy and for many years wrote the Chemometric Space column in NIR News.  He received the Tomas Hirschfeld award for contributions to near infrared spectroscopy in 2001, and is currently President of the International Council for Near Infrared Spectroscopy.

Yukihiro Ozaki

Yukihiro Ozaki graduated from Osaka University in 1973 with B.S degree in chemistry. He also obtained his M.S (1975) and Ph.D. (1978) degree in chemistry from the same university. After he spent for two years and a half at National Research Council, Canada as a research associate, he joined the Jikei University School of Medicine in Tokyo in 1981. In 1989 he moved to Kwansei Gakuin University, Hyogo, Japan as an associate professor of Chemistry Department. Since 1993, he has been a professor in the Department of Chemistry, School of Science and Technology. Ozaki was Dean of School of Science and Technology, Kwansei Gakuin University from 2006 to 2010. Currently, he is a Vice Rector of Kwansei Gakuin University.

Ozaki's research program has been concerned with basic studies and applications of near-infrared (NIR), far-ultraviolet (FUV), infrared (IR), and Raman spectroscopy.  His spectroscopy research covers from the proposal of novel spectroscopy like surface plasmon resonance (SPR)- NIR spectroscopy and attenuated total reflection (ATR)-FUV spectroscopy, the development of new types of instruments such as portable NIR imaging system, basic studies of physical phenomena like a study on mechanism of surface-enhanced Raman scattering to applications involving those to hydrogen bonding, intermolecular interactions and molecular structure of basic molecules, polymers, nano materials, and biological samples. His research interests also involve the developments spectral analysis methods such as quantum chemical calculations, two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy and chemometrics.

Ozaki received many awards including the 1998 Tomas Hirschfeld Award, the 2001 EAS Award for Achievements in Near Infrared Spectroscopy, the Spectroscopical Society of Japan Award (2002), Buechi Award 2002, the 2005 Science and Technology Award of Japanese Government (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology), Gerald Birth Award of International Conference Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy, the Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry (JSAC) Award (2008), Changbai Mountain Friendship Award from Jilin Province, China (2010), Bomem-Michelson Award (2014) , and The Chemical Society of Japan Award (2017), and more.

He received a Fellow Award from International Council of Near- infrared Spectroscopy (2017), Royal Society of Chemistry, The Chemical Society of Japan and Society for Applied Spectroscopy. He is an honorary professor of Jilin University and Changchung Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Science, and a guest professor of Peking University. He obtained Honoris Causa from Jagielonian University, Poland. Recently, he has been assigned to a guest professor of Leopold-Franzens University of Innsbruck, in 2018.
