Computer Vision News - February 2019

Serena, you are a postdoc at Harvard in between two Stanford stints. Yes, I did my PhD at Stanford, and I’m going to be returning as a faculty in the summer. In between, I decided that I wanted to take a year to go somewhere else and gain some different perspectives. And what better place than Harvard! When did you finish your PhD? In June 2018. Tell us something about Stanford that we don’t know. Someone told me once that Stanford is the second biggest university campus in the world. I believe the largest was in Moscow. It’s a really huge place. I include some of the hills around the main campus as well. I really love it as a place where you have a lot of space to walk, bike, see different views, and think about things. Can you tell us about your work? My work is focused primarily at the intersection of AI and healthcare. I want Serena Yeung Serena Yeung recently received her PhD from Stanford University, where she was advised by Fei-Fei Li and Arnold Milstein. During the current academic year, she is visiting Harvard University as a TEAM postdoctoral fellow. In Fall 2019, Serena will start her position as Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.
