Shigang Yue is a Professor in Computer Science, in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, University of Leicester, UK since 16th Feb 2023. He was a Professor in Computer Science (2012-2023), at the University of Lincoln, UK. He received his PhD and MSc degrees from Beijing University of Technology (BJUT) in 1996 and 1993 respectively. He worked in BJUT as a Lecturer (1996-1998) and an Associate Professor (1998-1999), also in City University of Hong Kong (MEEM) as a Senior Research Assistant (1998-1999). He was an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow (2000-2001) working with Prof. Henrich in the Faculty of Informatics, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Before joining the University of Lincoln as a Senior Lecturer (2007) and promoted to a Reader (2010), he had worked in the University of Cambridge (2006-2007), Newcastle University (2003-2006) and the University College London (UCL) (2002-2003) respectively.

His research interests are in the field of artificial intelligence, computer vision, robotics, brains, and neuroscience. He is particularly interested in biological visual neural systems, bio-inspired systems, evolving of neural subsystems, neuromorphic chip, embedded vision systems and its applications in collision detection for autonomous robots, autonomous vehicles, interactive systems, UAVs and ground robots. He has pioneered the area of using further organisations of directional selective neural networks for collision detection. He also has interest in medical image analysis, bio-inspired machine learning and bio-inspired robotics.

He has published more than 200 journal and conference papers in computer vision, artificial life, neural systems, neural evolution, swarm intelligence, vehicle collision detection, robotic navigation, robotic manipulation skills and dynamic simulations, many of them are in top tier high impact journals. He has chaired international conferences, he is also a reviewer for several reputable international journals and committee member of many international conferences. He is a member of EPSRC peer review college. He is the coordinator for several EU FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects.

He has examined 14 PhD thesis and 2 MSc by Research as an external or internal examiner in the past. He has been the chair for 3 PhD viva and panel for 2 MPhil/PhD transfer so far.
