Yi Fang received his PhD from Purdue University with a research focus on computer graphics and vision. Upon one year industry experience as a research intern in Siemens in Princeton, New Jersey and a senior research scientist in Riverain Technologies in Dayton, Ohio, and a half-year academic experience as a senior staff scientist at Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer science, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, he joined NYU Abu Dhabi as an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
He is currently working on the development of state-of-the-art techniques in large-scale visual computing, deep visual learning, deep cross-domain and cross-modality model, and their applications in engineering, social science, medicine, and biology. He jointly founded NYU Multimedia and Visual Computing Lab with another faculty from New York and Abu Dhabi campus, which served as an intellectual hub for faculty, researchers, and students from both New York and Abu Dhabi campuses, who come together to study and address the key challenges in multimedia and visual data processing.
