Dr.-Ing. Wei Yao was born in Nanjing, China, in 1981. In 2003, he received a B.S in sciences and techniques of photogrammetry and remote sensing from Wuhan University, China, and in 2007 he received the Dipl.-Ing. (Univ.) degree in Geodesy and Geoinformation from the Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany. Since 2007, he has been a scientific collaborator within the Institute of Photogrammetry and Cartography of TUM, . In 2010, he obtained his Ph.D. degree with distinction on the thema "airborne analysis and assessment of traffic situation in large areas using LiDAR data" also from TUM, Germany.

His research work is also partially funded by Bavarian Excellence program based on the Bavarian Elite Aid Act (BayEFG), and he has already published more than 30 academic articles in refereed international journals and conferences. He was the recipient of Best Student Paper Award from 2009 IEEE/ISPRS Joint Event on Urban Remote Sensing. Meanwhile, he was named a winner of the 2009 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad, which is granted around the world across all disciplines.

His main research interests include (full-waveform) LiDAR / Radar data analysis towards reconstruction and analysis of spatial-temporal behaviors of objects, image processing and analysis, pattern recognition, and related remote-sensing/ environmental  and industrial applications.
