Technology of China in 1988. He further obtained
his master and doctoral degrees in Computer
Science from the National University of
Singapore. In 2004, he started the Intelligent
Medical Imaging Research Team (iMED Singapore,
A*STAR) and grew it to become one of the world's
largest ophthalmic medical image processing
team, focusing on ophthalmic Artificial
Intelligence research. Jimmy was the chairman of
the IEEE Singapore Biomedical Engineering
Society in Singapore.
In March 2016, Jimmy returned to China and founded the iMED China (Ningbo) team. He was the founding director and senior professor of the Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering (CIBE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
In February 2019, he joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Southern University of Science and Technology to establish iMED China（Shenzhen). He will devote his time to more fundamental eye-brain, Artificial Intelligence, precision medicine, surgical robotics research.
