About me

I'm now working towards the Ph.D. degree in Computing, University of Dundee under the supervision of Dr. Jianguo Zhang.

Previously, I did my MSc degree with Distinction in Computing with Vision and Imaging at the University of Dundee in 2013. I received my Bachelor degree in Electronic Information Engineering at Nanjing Forestry University in 2012. I was an exchange student in Applied Computing at University of Dundee from 2011 - 2012.

I've been mainly working on MR brain image analysis using machine learning techniques, such as brain tumor segmentation, microbleeds detection, texture analysis on MR Diffision Images. I'm expecting to finish my Ph.D in January 2018 and currently in the job market!

My research interests include

  • MR Brain Image Analysis
  • Medical Image Analysis
  • Machine Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Computer Vision
  • Pattern Recognition
