The University of Georgia
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Georgia since 2016. My research interests lie in the area of image and shape analysis. I am interested in developing computational methodologies for image understanding problems in the fields of medical image analysis and computer vision. I am also excited in interdisciplinary research, collaborating and working with researchers from related fields.
Before joining UGA, I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, under the supervision of Dr. Marc Niethammer. I am a recipient of the 2014 MICCAI young scientist award (a.k.a., student best paper award) and a 2015 UNC dissertation completion fellowship.
Jan. 2017: Our paper on Regression Uncertainty on the Grassmannian was accepted by AISTATS 2017.
Aug. 2016: I joined the University of Georgia as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science.
Jun.-Jul. 2016: I had a short visit in the Laboratory of Mathematics in Imaging at Harvard Medical School.
May 2016: I successfully defended my Ph.D. dissertation.
Apr. 2016: I visited Polina's group at MIT and the PNL at Harvard Medical School and gave talks on Statistical Shape Analysis for High-Dimensional Data: Regression and Testing.
Jan. 2016: Our paper on Parametric Regression on the Grassmannian was accepted by TPAMI.
I am looking for self-motivated master and Ph.D. students to join my research group. Prior research experience in image analysis, optimization, statistical shape analysis, or other related areas is a plus. If you are interested in my research and in working with me, please send me your CV or stop by my office if you are at UGA.
