Ph.D. Student, Computer Science and Engineering (Biomedical Engineering)
johnnychen@gatech.edu

I am starting my Ph.D. Fall 2017 at Georgia Tech. I received my B.S. and M.S. in BME from the University of Virginia focused on ultrasound imaging and drug delivery. I worked in defense for a short stint developing deep learning for image segmentation. I am interested in utilizing deep learning and machine learning to build medical early warning and data analytic systems.

Undergraduate, Biomedical Engineering
smishra39@gatech.edu

I have been working in this lab on analyzing pan-cancer proteomic expression data. By analyzing multiple cancers in relation to each other, I hope to identify common proteins across cancers, and to use these proteins in building a prediction model to identify new patients as having early or late stage cancer. I am working in this lab in the Petit Scholars program under Chanchala Kaddi and Ryan Hoffman.
