Licheng Zong (宗理成)

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK-CSE), advised by Prof. Yu Li.

I obtained my Bachelor's degree from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2021. Before that, I graduated from Hefei No.1 High School in 2014.

My research interests lie in AI for Science and AI in Healthcare. My goal is building awesome AI systems to improve human health from both biological and clinical perspectives.
