I am an Assistant Professor at Department of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National University of Singapore. Before joining NUS, I was a senior research fellow at the Department of Computer Science, University College London, working with Prof. Danail Stoyanov. I received my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, advised by Prof. Pheng-Ann Heng and Prof. Chi-Wing Fu.

My research interests include artificial intelligence and its applications on medical image computing, robotic surgical data science. I recently work on spatial-temporal representation learning, data efficient learning, and multi-modality learning.

*Opening!* I am looking for PhD(2024Spring&Fall)/Postdoc/RA/Interns, who are interested in machine learning, medical image analysis, surgical 2D/3D vision, surgical robotic intelligence. Students with strong self-motivation and publication record are preferred. Welcome to email me after reading the details.

If you are an NUS student interested in doing research with me, also feel free to drop me an email!
