Dr. Yuyao ZHANG is an assistant professor, PI (Tenure-track) in ShanghaiTech  University, China. She received her B.E. degree from Harbin Engineering  University in 2007, Master degree from Harbin Institute of Technology in 2010,  and received her Ph.D. degree from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA-LYON) in 2014. From March 2014 to June 2016, she worked as a  postdoctoral fellow in Duke University Brain Imaging and Analysis Center (BIAC),  USA. From July 2016 to August 2018, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the  University of California Berkeley (UCB) Electronic Engineering and Computer  Science (EECS) department, USA. Her research interests include MR image process  and analysis using machine learning methods, and now she is focusing on the  studies for understanding infant brain development and neuro-degenerative  disease using MR image. She has published more than 20 papers on object and face  recognition related topics in many international conferences and journals,  including IEEE TMI, Neuroimage, Human Brain Mapping, Magnetic Resonance in  Medicine, MICCAI, etc.).
