Research Interests

Dr. Yupei Zhang is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. Before joining UPenn, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University, Atlanta, GA, from 2018 to 2020. His research interests lie in machine learning and its applications to medical image analysis, brain decoding, and cognitive computing. His researches in machine learning include compressed sensing, sparse regression, subspace learning, and deep learning. By developing new models and algorithms, he focuses on extracting highly informative features from clinical data for disease understanding and identifying regions of interest on medical images to facilitate clinical workflows. Besides, he has also published several research papers in the field of machine learning-based cognitive diagnosis. He served in the technical committee of many international conferences and is a technical reviewer for a number of international journals.
