tong_lLi Tong
Ph.D. Student, Biomedical Engineering

Before joining Georgia Tech, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Peking University, Beijing, China. My primary research focuses on medical imaging informatics and biomedical data integration. For medical imaging informatics, I have worked on image classification and segmentation for pathological whole slide images, CT images, and endomicroscopic images, aiming to improve the performance using semi-supervised or weakly-supervised deep learning methods. For biomedical data integration, I am mainly working on improving the prediction by learning modality-invariant representation from multi-modal data sets.

wu_hHang Wu
Ph.D. Student, Machine Learning (Home Dept. BME)

Before joining Georgia Tech, I graduated with a bachelor degree in Engineering from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. My research focus is on causal/counterfactual inference and its applications in health informatics. I’ve also worked on projects on biomedical imaging and public health.

Yuanda Zhu
Electrical and Computer Engineering

I am working on applying deep learning techniques on medical image processing and data-driven health informatics. For medical imaging, my research interest is weakly-supervised learning on whole-slide images. For health informatics, I prefer to topic on exploring the causal inference between diagnosis codes and non-diagnosis information (such as demographic, healthcare plan and payment) on the mortality consideration.

Qihang Yao
Master Student, Biomedical Engineering

Qihang earned his Bachelor degree in Biomedical Engineering from Northeastern University, China, having two-year experience as research assitant in Chineses Academy of Sciences, prior to joining in Georgia Tech. His past reseach projects mainly conern physiological signal analysis. He is currently working on clinical event prediction based on clinical and physiologcial time series analysis.

Je-Hoon Michael Oh
Master student, Bioinformatics
I am currently researching on causal inference. My focus is applying variations of Granger Causality algorithm to analyze causal relationships among time series data.
