Yujing (McMedHacks Co-director, Founder) was born and raised in the beautiful city of Tianjin, in China, before moving to Regina, Saskatchewan, in Canada and went to Balfour Collegiate. After graduating from a joint major in physiology and mathematics with a minor in physics at McGill University in 2020 in Montreal, Quebec, she joined the CAMPEP-accredited Medical Physics M.Sc. program at McGill and has started her Ph.D. in the Biological & Biomedical Engineering (BBME) Department in 2022. Throughout her degrees, she has been inspired and drawn to interdisciplinary research where mathematical modelling and computational tools are used to uncover problems in medicine. She joined the McGill Medical Physics Unit as an undergraduate researcher in 2018 and joined the Enger lab in 2021 during her M.Sc.. Her current research interests lie at the intersection of deep learning, image processing & analysis, and outcome prediction modelling in medical physics.
- Correlation between microscopic influence of cell spacing and nuclei size, extracted from Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) stained digital histopathological images, on treatment outcomes in radiation therapy.
- Treatment outcome Prediction for gynecological cancers patients with a multimodality deep learning model using pre/post diagnostic image modalities and digital histopathology images.
