I’m currently a research scientist at Wayne State University. I am very fortunate to be hosted by Professor Weisong Shi. I also affiliate with the  CAR LAB. My research focus is edge computing, mobile connected health, and machine learning/deep learning on the edge. Examples of topics that I enjoy researching on: the application of CNN-based object recognization for connected autonomous vehicle and machine learning aided system for modern medical diagnosis.
