I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University advised by Prof. Daniel Rubin. My research interests lie in the intersection of machine learning and medicine. I develop machine learning methods for medical applications by leveraging the important characteristics in medical data. I work closely with clinical experts from the Stanford School of Medicine to better understand the clinical needs.

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering (Highest Distinction Honors) from National University of Singapore, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Nitish Thakor and Prof. Thomas Yeo.

About Me

My Chinese name is 汤斯怡. I grew up in a beutiful city, Zhang Zhou, in Fujian Province of China. I lived in Singapore for 7+ years before coming to Stanford.

Besides research, I also enjoy photography, cooking and baking, violin and traveling around the world. You can find some of my photography works here.
