I am a master PhD student in CS @ UIUC. My advisor is Prof. Jimeng Sun. I finished B.S. in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) from 2015 to 2019.

I am building data-driven models to provide better solutions for healthcare problems, e.g., (chronic) drug recommendation. Recently, I am working on two projects:
  • Sleep staging project with my advisor and Prof. M. Brandon Westover from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). We build tensor models to automatically detect stages (awake, rem stage, non-rem stage cycles) for each sleep period.

  • IL pediatric vaccine CARE-A-VAN project with Pediatrics, MD, Mary E. Stapel from OSF Healthcare. A Brief Intro. We use IQVIA claim data to estimate how many (children) pediatric vaccines, e.g., MMR, Tdap, are needed for each zip code location, then we order the vaccines and send our care vans to deliver them.
