I am an Associate Professor at Department of Biomedical Informatics and Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of California, Los Angeles, and M.S. and B.S. in Engineering Physics from Tsinghua University, China. Prior to joining Stony Brook University, I was an assistant professor at Emory University. I was a research scientist at Siemens Corporate Research (Princeton, NJ) before joining Emory University.
My research covers Spatial Big Data Management, GIS, Medical Imaging Informatics, AI in Healthcare, Population Health and Opioid Epidemic Research.
April 15, 2020: Our Ph.D. student, Sina Rashidian, was awarded the Graduate Student of the Year at Stony Brook University.

Sina Rashidian was awarded the Graduate Student of the Year award, the highest honor of graduate student employees of the University, for his creativity, leadership and mentorship.

January 9, 2020: We are very grateful for ALS Association to fund us on building EyeCanDo, an eye gaze-based technology using Apple TrueDepth camera to enable communication for ALS patients.

Lack of mobility and communication due to disability seriously limits the personal freedom of ALS patients and can lead to a low quality of life. The progressive loss of independence and connection to the world affects them and their caregivers physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. EyeCanDo is an eye gaze-based technology built on top of Apple smart devices (iPad and iPhone) to enable communications for ALS patients.
The project is in collaboration with Dr. Xiaojun Bi.

August 1, 2019: We are awarded $1.14M from National Cancer Institute to develop methods and software for 3D computional digital pathology.

The project "Computational pathology software for integrative cancer research with three-dimensional digital slides" will develop AI, computer vision and big spatial data technologies to advance cancer research and potentially assist pathologists to improve the efficiency and efficacy for clinical diagnosis. In particular, the work will revolutionize digital pathology from 2D to 3D, which provides a 3D “GIS” like map of human tissues. The project is in collaboration with Georgia State University.

June 20, 2019: Study shows that opioid poisoning rates higher and in a more diverse population.

Our recent studies show that opioid poisoning (OP) levels almost doubled from 2010 to 2016 on Long Island. Additionally, the study revealed that the demographics of patients with OP appears to be shifting and becoming more diverse.
