Role: Instructor for the introduction to deep learning workshop
Hello, my name is Ximeng Mao, and I am a computer science PhD student at Mila and University of Montreal. Before that, I did my Master’s at McGill computer science while working at the medical physics unit. I have wide interests in Deep Learning and its applications in medical domains. Previously, I have worked in developing RapidbrachyDL, a deep convolutional neural network to predict the Monte-Carlo dose maps, and my other works involve the use of generative model to infer disentangled features from medical images, as well as the use of reinforcement learning to search for the optimal treatment plans. I am currently working in the intersection of deep learning and neurosciences, especially on the topic of the brain-computer interface.
