Brief History
Tianzi Jiang is Professor and Director of Beijing Key Laboratory of Brainnetome, Director of the Brainnetome Center, the Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the core member of CAS Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology, and Professor of Queensland Brain Institute, University of Queensland.  He received  PhD degree in computational mathematics from Zhejiang University in 1994. After he graduated, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow (1994-1996) and Associate Professor (1996-1999), and full professor (1999-present) at his current institution in China. During that time, he worked as a Vice-Chancellor's postdoctoral fellow at the University of New South Wales, a visiting scientist at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, a research fellow at the Queen's University of Belfast, and a visiting professor at University of Houston. He is also a Professor of University of Queensland, Australia, and an Adjunct Professor of University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, and Zhejiang University.  His research interests include neuroimaging, brainnetome, imaging genetics, and their clinical applications. He is the author or co-author of over 200 reviewed journal papers in these fields and the co-editor of six issues of the Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences. He is Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Cognitive and Developmental Systems, Frontiers in Neuroinformatics, and Neuroscience Bulletin and Section Editor of BMC Neuroscience. He served and is serving as the Chairs and Program Committee members of a number of international conferences, including General Chair of MICCAI’2010. He was awarded the National Distinguished Youth Foundations by Chinese Government (2004), the Natural Science Award of China (2004), and the Natural Science Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (1996).
