Dr Yitian Zhao is currently the director and professor of the Lab of Intelligent Medical Imaging (iMED) at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology and Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His research expertise is ophthalmic medical image processing, vessel structure analysis, eye and brain joint computing. In particular, he is interested in understanding the relation between retinal vascular changes and a wide spectrum of eye/brain diseases (e.g. diabetic retinopathy, malaria retinopathy, tumors, Alzheimer's disease).
He also has a contract as an honorary lecturer with the Department of Eye and Vision Science, University of Liverpool. He received his BEng, MSc in 2008 and 2009 in the UK, respectively. He finished his PhD degree in 3D Image Analysis from the Department of Computer Science at Aberystwyth University in 2013. Previously, he was a lecturer at the Beijing Institute of Technology from 2015 to 2017 and worked as a postdoctoral and lecturer in the Department of Eye and Vision Science at the University of Liverpool from 2013 to 2015. He is currently also served as a Committee Associate Member of IEEE BISP (2021-2022), editorial board member (speciality with Opthalmology) for Scientific Reports (2017-today), Program Co-Chair of ICIMH (2021), Program Committee of MICCAI workshop OMIA (2017-today), MIUA (2019), MICAD (2021) and etc.
