About Me

Dr. Fangwen Yu is a researcher of 3D cognitive navigation in robotics and neuroscience for the real world. His career vision is to create robots that navigate like humans do inspired by the brain.

His research models the neural mechanisms in the brain underlying tasks like 3D navigation and 3D spatial cognition to develop new neuromorphic 3D SLAM and 3D cognitive navigation technologies for space, air, land, sea-based autonomous robots and vehicles. He is now working on the NeuroSLAM Project.

He is a member of IEEE, RAS, RIN, CCF and CAAI. He is currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow supervised by Prof. Luping Shi in the Center for Brain-Inspired Computing Research (CBICR) at Tsinghua University. He was a PhD student (2015~2020) supervised by Prof. Jianga Shang and Prof. Youjian Hu in National Engineering Research Center for GIS and School of Geography and Information Engineering at China University of Geosciences in Wuhan. He was a visiting PhD student (2017~2019) supervised by Prof. Michael Milford in the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) and School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). He received his B.E. degree in Software Engineering, the M.E. degree in Computer Science, and the Ph.D. degree in Science and Technology of Surveying and Mapping from China University of Geosciences in 2012, 2015, 2020 respectively, and the B.B.A. degree in Business Administration from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2012.
