Publishing paper is like updating status in Facebook, citations are the 'likes'.

PhD Tips

Even a nature publication cannot get you a sexy girl-friend.

PhD Tips

An active social life and a good PhD hold an inverse square relationship.

PhD Tips

Conferences are less about convincing people; more about confusing people.

PhD Tips

Copy from one, it's plagiarism; copy from many, it's research.

About

I'm a research fellow of the Australia Research Council Training Centre in Innovative BioEngineering, a research coordinator (USYD) with the Shanghai Jiao Tong University – University of Sydney (SJTU-USYD) Joint Research Alliance and a member of the Biomedical Multimedia Information Technology (BMIT) research group, the University of Sydney. I work closely with clinicians from hospitals in Australia and China, including the Royal Prince Alfred, Westmead, Ruijin and Renji Hospital. During my PhD, I was supervised by Prof. David Dagan Feng, A/Prof. Jinman Kim and Clinical Professor Michael Fulham.

My current research interests include biomedical image analysis and disease mapping ( ).
