Yuanqi Du

Yuanqi Du is a senior undergraduate student studying Computer Science at George Mason University. He has broad interests in machine learning and data mining. He worked on Outlier Detection, American Sign Language Recognition (Mili-meter Wave Signals & Kinect), Protein Structure Classification, Molecule Generation via Graph Neural Network and Medical Image Synthesis. He is currently working on GNN for Molecule Generation with Dr. Liang Zhao, Dr. Amarda Shehu and ASL Recognition with Dr. Parth Pathak. He joins MIRACLE Lab in Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Computing Technology, working with Dr. Hu Han and Dr. Kevin Zhou for a research intern starting Aug, 2020 on medical image synthesis.

Drop me an email if you’d like to talk about/collaborate on any of the following research topics or other research areas with me. I currently live in Beijing, China, feel free to grab a coffee with me, too!
