I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Harvard University. Prior to starting my Ph.D. I obtained my M.S. in Computational Biology and Quantitative Genetics at Harvard, advised by Prof. Faisal Mahmood. Before that, I received my B.S. in Applied Biology with a minor in Applied Mathematics at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Lawrence Chan, and Prof. Songlin Chua.

My research interests include gigapixel computational pathology, representation learning, and multimodal integration.


Aug 28, 2023 I joined Harvard CS as a Ph.D. student focusing on machine learning for healthcare!
