I am a postdoctoral researcher mentored by Prof. Rebecca A. Hubbard and Prof. Kristin A. Linn in the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Informatics (DBEI) at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. I am a member of Penn Statistics in Imaging and Visualization Endeavor (PennSIVE) center. My methodological work focuses on developing and applying deep learning approaches that facilitate precision medicine and equitably improve health outcomes. Specifically, I developed deep generative models to generate complete medical data, such as magnetic resonance imaging and electronic health records, for under-represented populations. Additionally, I characterize and assess algorithmic fairness in machine learning models that predict prevalent public health diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer.

I obtained my PhD in Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University in 2022, under the supervision of Prof. Mohsen Moghaddam and Prof. Sagar Kamarthi. My work focused on the development and application of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) in intelligent manufacturing.

I will join the Department of Informatics at Ying Wu College of Computing, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in 2024 Fall!

I am seeking highly self-motivated PhD students who are interested in generative AI in health. If you are interested in working with me, please email with your CV, transcript, and other materials that you want to share.

My research interests include but are not limited to the following:

  • Generative AI: Diffusion Models, Generative Adversarial Networks, LLMs, Multimodal Learning
  • Fairness in AI: Algorithmic Fairness, Fairness Verification, Missing Data, Imbalanced Data
  • Interdisciplinary Application: Healthcare, Bioinformatics, Intelligent manufacturing
