Institution of Highest Degree:
University of Pennsylvania

I am an Assistant Professor of Department of Biomedical Informatics and Intelligent Systems Program at the University of Pittsburgh and an adjunct faculty in the Machine Learning Department at the Carnegie Mellon University. My research is at the intersection of medical vision (medical image analysis), machine learning, and bioinformatics. I develop algorithms to analyze and understand medical image along with genetic data and other electrical health records such as the clinical report. For example, we are developing a probabilistic model to extract information from brain images (Magnetic Resonance Images) of patients with Alzheimer's disease and relate them the underlying genetic markers involved in the disease. We are interested in method development as well as translational clinical problems because after all, exciting research directions are coming from real applications.
