I am currently a second year computer science Ph.D. student from UT Arlington. My supervisor is Prof. Junzhou Huang . I am passionate at applying machine learning algorithms and creating new models to solve challenges met with the development of bioinformatics and biomedicine. Before coming to UT Arlington, I spent 3 years in Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA). In CASIA, I built and tested intelligent algorithms for miniature autonomous vehicle. Besides that, I had also communicated science to over 10,000 people from 2013 to 2015. You can find my CV here.

- One deep attention-based model was proposed to solve the challenging problem. Very promising results were achieved on two types of cancers datasets;
- We are trying to generalize our model to solve other fine-grained learning problems with weak labels.
- Efficient deep learning models with specific training strategies were developed to solve the first two problems;
- A novel framework was also created to solve the third challenge.
- Integrating features extracted from pathology image patches with genetic signature expressions to improve the survival prediction accuracy;
- Developing methods for imaging biomarker discovery;
- Mapping clinical outcome correlated Imaging-Genetic data by developing supervised conditional Gaussian graphical model (SuperCGGM).
- Created a novel method for RGB and depth images registration in outdoor scenes;
- Collected over 10,000 RGBD outdoor pedestrain RGBD images;
- Developed a fast pedestrian detection framework based on RGBD images.
Large Scale Learning for Complex Image-Omics Data Analytics
This project aims to develop computational tools for analyzing complex pathology image data as well genomics data. To solve the key and challenging problems in mining comprehensive heterogeneous image and genomic data, novel large scale learning tools and explore ways to integrate features from multiple data sources for clinical outcome prediction are developed. It will greatly support the Precision Medicine Initiative, which enables physicians to select individualized treatments. I work on developing feature learning from gigapixel whole slide pathology images and integrating imaging-omics data methods.
Miniature Autonomous Vehicle
The miniature autonomous vehicle was built from a toy car. It mainly consisted of a toy car, 3 web cameras, 1 ultrasonic radar and a motherboard equipped with Ubuntu 12.04LTS. It could do traffic signs recognition, traffic light recognition, road line detection and also be with the basic functions of a toy car. I was in charge of building the traffic signs recognition module and testing the hardware & software architecture.
SOAR-based Air Traffic Control Simulation System
Using SOAR as a cognition architecture to simulate an air traffic controller’s decision making could potentially make the training of an air traffic controller easier and with more fun. I was the software architect of the whole system and the main designer of the rules used in SOAR architecture
