Hello, 你好, Bonjour!

Currently, I am a Master of Mathematics student in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. On May 27 2021, I received an Honours Bachelor of Science with Distinction from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Victoria.

My interests and enthusiasm are for Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing for Medicine. I am exploring how to use medical data and machine learning to help doctors make diagnostic decisions. I am broadly keen on computer vision for improving cancer detection and classification, lesion segmentation and quantification in all types of imaging modalities. I am recently fascinated by natural language processing for analyzing and interpreting genomics and clinical reports, and their linkages between images to improve patient outcomes.
