I am an Assistant Professor of the Department of Biomedical Informatics with a secondary appointment at the School of Computing and Information at the University of Pittsburgh. My research is at the intersection of medical vision (medical image analysis), machine learning, and bioinformatics. I develop algorithms to analyze and understand medical images, genetic data, and other electrical health records such as clinical reports. The main themes of research in my lab are about the main challenges of AI in healthcare: (1) Explainability, (2) Data Efficiency, (3) Multimodal Data Fusion and Causality. My lab works on Alzheimer’s Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) projects. Our research is supported by funding from NIH, NSF, and industry awards.  Read More
