Biography

Associate Professor Yalin Wang joined Arizona State University in 2010. Before joining ASU's School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, he was a key investigator of Center for Computational Biology at University of California, Los Angeles. Between 2004 and 2008, he was a cofounder and the CTO of Geometric Informatics, Inc., a NIST Advanced Technology Program Award recipient. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers. Wang's research interests include computer vision, medical imaging, computer graphics, geometric modeling, machine learning, and statistical pattern recognition.
