About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) advised by Dr. Emad Boctor, Dr. Russell Taylor, and Dr. Webster Stayman. I am also a pre-doctoral research fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) working with Dr. Bradford Wood, Dr. Sheng Xu, and Dr. Peter Pinto. I received Master in Robotics from the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) at JHU, and Bachelor in Electronic Information Engineering from Zhejiang University (ZJU) with a minor in the Advanced Honor Class for Engineering Education (ACEE) from Chu Kochen Honors College.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in image formation, image reconstruction, and robotics with applications to two emerging biomedical acoustic imaging modalities - photoacoustic imaging and ultrasound tomography. By prototyping the instrumentation, developing new imaging formation methods, and enhancing the image quality, I employ photoacoustic imaging and ultrasound tomography to discover new quantitative parameters for cancer detection. I am currently focusing on prostate cancer detection.
