I am an Assistant Professor of Electronic and Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My research lies in the interdisciplinary areas of artificial intelligence and medical image analysis, aiming at advancing healthcare with machine intelligence. Specifically, I work on making machine learning more reliable, human-compatible, and statistically rigorous, and am especially interested in applications in healthcare. Before joining HKUST, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University, working with Prof. Lei Xing. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, advised by Prof. Pheng-Ann Heng and Prof. Chi-Wing Fu.

I am looking for self-motivated Postdoc/PhD/RA/Interns. Feel free to drop me an email with your CV.

If you are an HKUST student interested in doing research with me, please send me an email.
