I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Lehigh University. My research interests lie in the area of computer vision, artificial intelligence, text, image, and shape analysis. Specifically, I am interested in developing computational methodologies for image understanding problems in the fields of medical image analysis (such as using machine learning methods to discover the underlying mechanisms of diseases) and computer vision (such as identifying the position of an object). In addition, I am developing methods to facilitate learning categories of new raw text data from existing data. I am also excited about interdisciplinary research, collaborating, and working with researchers from related fields.
