Bio

I am a second year BME Ph.D. student at Yale University, advised by Prof. Nicha C. Dvornek. Before that, I got my Bachelor's degree in CS at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, advised by Prof. Andrew Owens, and another Bachelor's degree in ECE at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My research interest lies in the computer vision, multi-modality learning, and medical image analysis. I am always thrilled to work on the questions that address real-world needs.
