Yimin Wang (王宜敏) is currently a Principal Investigator at Guangdong Institute of Intelligence Science and Technology, leading the Lab of Computing and Visualization for Connectomics Data. He is also an Adjunct Professor at the Institute for Brain and Intelligence (BrainTell) of Southeast University. As a computational neuroscientist, his current research goals include 1) exploring the brain anatomical structures at single-cell level with the assistance of various techniques such as immersive visualization, image computing, machine intelligence-based analysis, etc. and 2) answering biological questions such as how many cell types are there in a certain brain region, how cells connect together to form circuits, etc. Previously, he has also worked at Shanghai University and IBM Research - China.

Recently he developed TeraVR, a virtual reality-based tool that can be used for the immersive, collaborative, and interactive annotation of neuronal morphologies from light microscopy imaging data. With TeraVR, a number of major global brain initiatives are now producing some of the most complete neuron morphology data at an unprecedented efficiency.

🧩 🧩 🧩 2022-09 I'm now actively looking for Associate Professor, leturers, postdocs, engineers, assistant, as well as interns.
