Zhen Yang


Jr. Data Scientist

The coolest things I've done in my career are:

  • Developed a model to detect false-positive rates in medical images and published more than five journal and conference papers during two years of master study 

  • Switched from Biomedical Engineering to Computer Science, hoping to make more contributions in healthcare from a data science perspective 

If I could have a super power it would be:

  • Time travel (to witness important events - i.e. how I was born) 

I'm a "closet" fan of:

  • George R. R. Martin 

The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time is:

  • Reading novels 

Three things still on my bucket list are:

  1. Run a marathon 

  2. Road trip across the country 

  3. See the Northern Lights 

My past experience includes:

I am an MScAC student in Computer Science at University of Toronto. I received my BEng (Northeastern University) and MEng (Shanghai Jiao Tong University) in Biomedical Engineering in China. My master’s research was to use dynamic FDG-PET imaging to differentiate malignancy from Inflammation. As I realized the importance of data driven methods in healthcare research, I continued my study in data science.


My recent interest focuses on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning for Health. And I would like to apply highly efficient, accurate and cost-effective data science techniques in the healthcare field.
