Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Informatics and Intelligent Systems, University of Pittsburgh
My research is at the intersection of medical vision (medical image analysis), machine learning, and bioinformatics. I develop algorithms to analyze and understand medical images along with genetic data and other electrical health records such as the clinical report. For example, I have developed a probabilistic model to extract information from brain images (Magnetic Resonance Images) of patients with Alzheimer's disease and relate them the underlying genetic markers involved in the disease. I am interested in novel method development as well as real-world clinical applications.

Dr. Wu’s background is in computer vision with additional training in radiology and clinical imaging. His research interfaces a broad range of interdisciplinary in computational science and medicine for translational and clinical applications, with main areas in computational biomedical imaging analysis, big (health) data coupled with machine/deep learning, imaging-based clinical studies, radiomics/radiogenomics, and artificial intelligence in clinical informatics/workflows. Current research interests center on computational breast imaging and clinical studies for investigating quantitative imaging-derived biomarkers, models, and systems for breast cancer screening, risk assessment, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, towards improving individualized clinical decision-making and precision medicine.
