Biography

Ting Zhao is a senior software engineer of the Scientific Computing group at Janelia. He had worked at Janelia as a postdoctoral associate and bioinformatics specialist in Dr. Eugene Myers' lab after receiving his  Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2007. In 2010, he left for Zhejiang University in China and became a faculty member there. After two years of work in China, he returned to Janelia as a member of the FlyEM project. With many years of experience in image analysis and software development, he is interested in developing computational methods and software tools for revealing how the brain works. He is a major member of the team that was awarded "for the excellent quality and strength of their algorithm" in the DIADEM competition (Digital Reconstruction of Axonal and Dendritic Morphology). Based on the algorithm, he has developed software named neuTube (available upon request) for reconstructing neuron morphology from light microscope images efficiently and accurately.
