I am a tenure track associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) since 2021. My research interests lie in the area of image and shape analysis and AI in medical imaging. 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 SJTU, I worked as a tenure track assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Georgia. In 2016, 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.

I am looking for self-motivated undergraduate, master, and Ph.D. students to join my research group. Prior research experience in image analysis, deep learning, 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 SJTU.
