Hi there! This is Hejie Cui (pronounced as “Her-jay Tsuee”, 崔鹤洁 in Chinese). I am currently a final-year PhD student in Computer Science at Emory University, advised by Prof. Carl Yang. In the past summers, I interned at Microsoft Research and Amazon Science.
Research Interests: My research focuses on multimodal data mining and knowledge-empowered model for health informatics. Lately, I am interested in the evaluation of large language/multimodal models for medical and exploring data-centric AI approaches for foundational models. If our research interests align, I would be delighted to discuss potential collaborations. Please don’t hesitate to reach out via message or email.
Previously, I got my bachelor’s degree (Valedictorian, GPA Ranking: 1/164) in Software Engineering at Tongji University. During my undergraduate, I worked on computer vision for medical imaging with Prof. Lin Zhang. In addition, I worked with Prof. Tianwei Yu on machine learning for bioinformatics. I also spent a wonderful summer at Prof. Gabor Fichtinger‘s Perk Lab at the School of Computing, Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada through the Mitacs program.
