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.


Sep 13, 2023 Excited to share our latest work on UNI, a general-purpose self-supervised model for computational pathology.
Aug 28, 2023 I joined Harvard CS as a Ph.D. student focusing on machine learning for healthcare!
Jul 26, 2023 Check out our new preprint in visual language foundation model for pathology!
