About Me

Dr. Fangwen Yu is a researcher of brain-inspired robotics. His research focuses on brain-inspired navigation in neurorobotics and neuroscience. His career vision is creating neurorobots that navigate like humans do for the real world.

His research models the neural mechanisms in the brain underlying tasks like spatial navigation and spatial memory to develop new brain-inspired general intelligent navigation (BGINav) technologies for space, air, land, sea-based brain-inspired general intelligent robots (BGIBot). He is now working on the NeuroSLAM Project, the NeuroROS Project and the NeuroRobot 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.
