Yimin Wang (王宜敏) is currently with School of Computer Engineering and Science, Shanghai University. Previously, he has worked at IBM Research - China. 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.
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.
