Michael Ying Yang studied Communication Engineering at Sichuan University, China. From 2005 to 2008, he studied Communication and Information System at Institute of Electronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, where he received Ms.Eng. in 07/2008.

From 2008 to 2012, he was a Research Assistant at Department of Photogrammetry, Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation, Universit├Ąt Bonn. He was involved in the DFG project 'Semi-automatic generation of highly detailed textured building models', which is part of the Sino-German bundle project 'Interoperation of 3D Urban Geoinformation'. He received the Dr.-Ing. (summa cum laude) in 12/2011 with PhD thesis 'Hierarchical and Spatial Structures for Interpreting Images of Man-made Scenes Using Graphical Models'.

Since 05/2012, he works as PostDoc at the Institute for Information processing (TNT), Leibniz Universit├Ąt Hanover. His research interests include multiple object tracking and cosegmentation, graphical models, and classification.
