About

Lin Yang is an assistant professor with the Division of Biomedical Informatics at Dept. of Biostatistics, and Dept. of Computer Science at University of Kentucky. He leads the Biomedical Imaging Computing and Imaging Informatics (BICI2) Lab.

He received his B. E. and M. S. from Xian Jiaotong University in 1999 and 2002, and his Ph. D. in Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey in 2009 (http://www.ece.rutgers.edu/Alumni_in_Academia). He did part of his research in Siemens Corporate Research and IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in 2007 and 2008. He was an assistant professor in the Dept. of Radiology and graduate faculty in the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering in Rutgers University from 2009-2011.

His major research interests are focus on biomedical image analysis, imaging informatics, computer vision, and machine learning. He is also working on high performance computing and computer aided diagnostics.
