Yuan Zhang is a highly motivated and experienced researcher with a background in data science, chemical engineering, and bioengineering. Currently, Yuan is a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, where she is building an AI system to assist doctors with the diagnosis of endometriosis as part of the IMAGENDO project (https://imagendo.org.au/).
In Yuan's previous roles, she has gained experience in AI research, detecting harmful algal blooms and other pathogens, evaluating environmental pollution, and teaching. Yuan holds a Master's degree in Data Science from the University of Adelaide, where she received the Executive Dean's Recognition of Academic Excellence for her study. During Yuan's Master's degree, she designed and implemented a user interface for an AI-enabled colonoscopy system and constructed deep learning models to enrich its functions. Yuan has also completed a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering and a Bachelor's degree in Bioengineering.
Yuan is highly skilled in data analysis and machine learning. She is committed to using her skills and knowledge to contribute to the development of innovative solutions in the field of data science and AI.
As a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, Yuan's research focuses on developing an AI system to assist doctors in the diagnosis of endometriosis. This is a crucial component of the IMAGENDO project, which aims to improve the diagnosis and management of this condition.
Yuan's research involves the development of deep learning models that can accurately identify and classify endometriosis lesions in medical images, such as ultrasound and MRI scans. This research has the potential to significantly improve the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis, a condition that affects millions of women worldwide. By leveraging the power of AI and deep learning, Yuan's work is at the forefront of the field of medical imaging and has important implications for women's health.
Yuan's recent work "Distilling Missing Modality Knowledge from Ultrasound for Endometriosis Diagnosis with Magnetic Resonance Images" won the Best Oral Presentation Award at the 20th IEEE-ISBI 2023 International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging.
