I am a Ph.D. student in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley. I work on computational microscopy advised by Prof. Laura Waller.

Before moving to Berkeley, I spent six years at UCLA and obtained B.S. in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics with Cum Laude and M.S. in Computer Science. My past research was on computer vision and medical imaging. During M.S., I worked on MRI post-analysis advised by Prof. Kyung Hyun Sung and co-advised by Prof. Fabien Scalzo. I received Best Paper 2nd place in IEEE/EMBS ISBI 2019. In college, I worked on knowledge graph parsing/explainable AI advised by Prof. Song-Chun Zhu.

Besides research, I spend time on downhill skiing, jogging, trekking, photography. And my name is pronounced as “Rei-Ming Tsao/Chao” :)
