I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Texas, Arlington.
Before joining UTA, I completed my Ph.D in Computer Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Madison in Aug. 2017 thanks to great support from
Prof. Vikas Singh (advisor)
and close collaboration with Prof. Moo K. Chung, Prof. Sterling C. Johnson and Prof. Barbara B. Bendlin and worked as a researcher at NEC Lab., America in Princeton, NJ. Please find my CV here.
I am on leave-of-absence from UTA and have joined POSTECH (in South Korea) as an Assistant Profesor in Computer Science and Engineering / Graduate School of AI. I am currently not hiring any students at UTA.
Dec, 2020: I will join POSTECH (in South Korea) as an Assistant Profesor in Computer Science and Engineering starting December 2020.
Aug, 2020: My proposal to NSF CRII (known as "mini CAREER") is now awarded.
Aug, 2020: Our proposal funded by NSF Core program, a joint work between UTA (Gautam Das and I) and NJIT (Senjuti B. Roy).
Jun, 2020: We have a paper accepted to Brain Connectivity in collaboration with UTSW.
July, 2020: We have a paper accepted to TPAMI in collaboration with UW-Madison.
May 18, 2020: We have a paper accepted to MICCAI 2020. Congrats Fan!
Jan. 7, 2020: We have a paper accepted to ISBI 2020. Congrats Xin!
Jul. 22, 2019: We have one paper accepted in ICCV 2019.
Mar. 27, 2019: My proposal to Research Enhancement Program at UTA got accepted.
My research interests lie in multi-resolution analysis of data for various applications in Brain Imaging,
Machine Learning and Computer Vision. On the application side, I am particularly interested in developing novel methods
to facilitate the analysis of neurodegenerative brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) towards
mechanisms for diagnosis, discovering new treatments, and design of new studies. On the technical side,
my interests deal with applied harmonic analysis and statistical image analysis.
