My name is Yang Yang. I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I am interested in developing machine learning-based algorithms and software for biological data analysis and biomedical information processing.
- Biomedical Image Understanding
We design machine learning algorithms for the annotation, clustering and segmentation of biomedical images, including spatial gene expression images, cryo-EM single-particle images, immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence microscopic images, etc.
- Biological Language Modeling
We regard biological sequences (DNA/RNA sequences and amino acid sequences) as a special kind of language, and explore biomolecular structure and functions based on sequence analysis using statistical language models, word embeddings and deep learning models.
- Machine Learning and Data Mining
We develop algorithms to deal with large scale, imbalanced and multi-label classification problems, mainly from the biomedical field.
