Yiming Gan

My name is Yiming Gan (甘一鸣). I’m currently an assistant professor at Institute of Computing Technologies, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Before joining ICT, CAS, I received my PhD degree from CS Department, University of Rochester in 2023. My PhD advisor is Professor Yuhao Zhu.

I do research in computer architecture, with emphasis on autonomous machines, including robots, autonomous vehicles and drones. I believe this is an exciting domain which may fundamentally change people’s life. Research has more to offer.

I always have openings for students. If you love to do research in building better software and hardware for next generation robots, and know how to program, send me an email at: ganyiming@ict.ac.cn. Prospective Students has more to offer.
