To advance the clinical diagnosis using cutting-edge machine learning techniques
 

Brief Bio


Currently, I am a senior applied research scientist at Nvidia Corporation, focusing on deep learning techniques and their application in medical imaging. Previously, I spent 3 years as a visiting fellow in Dr. Ronald Summers's CAD lab at National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. From Dec. 2013 to Jun. 2015, I was a product manager of post-processing workstations for multiple medical imaging modalities in Shanghai United Imaging Healthcare (UIH). Prior, I worked as an algorithm engineer and then dept. manager in Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) Department, Healthcare Software Unit, UIH, from Sep. 2011 to Nov. 2013. I received my PhD in Computer Vision under the supervision of Prof. Majid Mirmehdi at University of Bristol, UK in 2011. My research interests include computer vision, machine learning , deep learning and its application in medical imaging.
