My research focuses on medical imaging, medical image analysis using machine learning, and computer-aided diagnosis. I have been primarily working on three research projects since joining SU:

  • Non-invasive skin cancer detection using computer-aided spectroscopic systems;
  • Prediction of blood glucose level and detection of hyperglycemia/hypoglycemia using optimization and machine learning techniques;
  • Detection of diabetic retinopathy of diabetic patients using image processing and machine learning techniques.

In the meanwhile, I have been also working on some research projects related to machine learning - for example, how to adjust weight of single classifier in an ensemble of classifiers for classification problems and regression problems.
