  • Short Bio

    I am now a post-doc at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, supervised by Dr. Ben Glocker in BioMedIA. Before that, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), supervised by Prof. Pheng Ann Heng in July 2018. I received B. Eng. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Beihang University (BUAA) in Beijing, June 2014. I worked with Dr. Yan Xu for undergraduate research in MSRA.


    Research Interests

    Medical Image Analysis, Deep Learning, Machine Learning.

    I focus on interdisciplinary researches at medical image analysis and artificial intelligence, for improving lesion detection, anatomical structure segmentation and quantification, cancer diagnosis and therapy, and surgical robotic perception. I have expertise in 3D deep learning for high-dimensional medical image computing.

    Recently, I widely investigate model generalization and robustness related topics in machine learning for medical scenarios.
