Mr. Zhao is a Ph.D. student in the Physics and Biology in Medicine Graduate Program. He received his Master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan. His previous research was focused on the intersection of deep learning and computer vision, with applications ranging from vehicular perception systems to healthcare systems. While working on projects centered on artificial intelligence-assisted dementia diagnosis, he became inspired by the swift and meaningful impact that deep learning can have in medicine. As a result, he is committed to medical imaging research through the application of deep learning methods to cardiovascular image reconstruction with the goal of decreased acquisition time and improved image quality.
