Hi, I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student in College of Computing, Georgia Tech. I received my B.S. and M.S. in Compute Science and Information Engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU) in 2002 and 2004, respectively. I conducted my master research in Digital Speech Processing Lab, NTU, supervised by Prof. Lin-Shan Lee. After graduation, I had worked as a software engineer in Realtek and Vivotek, respectively.
I began my Ph.D. research in Georgia Tech from Fall 2008. My research interests include computer vision, machine learning, and medical image processing. My current research focuses on designing novel algorithms for applications in biomedical field.
