Miscellaneous Information

SHORT BIO

I obtained my Bachelor and Mater’s degree of Biomedical Engineering in Shanghai Jiao Tong University and then joined TIG in September 2014. After submitting my PhD thesis in Juanurary 2018, I'm now working as a Reseearch Assoicate in TIG. During my Master’s programme, I worked on segmentation framework in liver surgical planning system. My PhD was funded by UCL Overseas Research Scholarship (ORS) and UCL Graduate Research Scholarship (GRS). The PhD project was to develop machine learning algorithms for segmentation of placenta and brain tumors from MRI, under the supervision of Professor Sebastien Ourselin and Tom Vercauteren.
