Short Bio

​I am currently a third year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and EngineeringThe Chinese University of Hong Kong, supervised by Prof. Qi Dou. Previously, I received the B. Eng. degree from Shandong University in 2020, under the supervison from Prof. Yuanfeng Zhou.

My research interest lies in computer vision and machine learning with applications for medical image analysis. I aim to promote the applicability (regarding explainability, privacy and generalizability) of AI research for healthcare. Recently I focus on federated learning.
