About Wendy

I'm an incoming Neuroscience PhD student at the University of Southern California, starting Fall 2021. I completed my MS in Computer Science at the University of Pennsylvania where I worked at Dr. Li Shen's lab as a graduate researcher.
For all inquiries, email me at <yixuefen at usc.edu>.

Research Interest
I'm interested in developing and applying machine learning methods to high dimensional or multimodal neuroimaging genetics data and study how they can inform the understanding, diagnosis or treatment of neurodegenerative diseasex. I also enjoy web programming and learning about distributed systems design.
