I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science department in Brown University, Providence, RI. My research passion lies in interdisciplinary and collaborative research on powerful computational models, algorithms, image analysis and interactive visualization tools for medical imaging, brain science and life science. I believe that application-driven contributions to expand computer science to interdisciplinary research will become more and more important in exploring and understanding scientific and health-related problems.
I work in the Visualization Research Lab which is part of Graphics Lab with Professor David H. Laidlaw. I am collaborating closely with neuropsychologists Stephen Correia (Butler Hospital) and David Tate (Harvard Medical School).
I received a B.S. degree (with high distinction) in Computer Science from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2005 and a Sc.M. in Computer Science from Brown University in 2009. I was awarded First Place in the 2006 ACM SIGGRAPH Student Research Competition, Best Poster Finalist at the 2008 IEEE Visualization Poster Compendium, and Graduate Research Award from Brown Institute for Brain Science in 2009.
