profile

Mingjie Gao

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, advised by Prof. Jeffrey A. Fessler and Prof. Heang-Ping Chan. I am working on improving the image quality and cancer diagnosis of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) through model-based reconstruction, denoising and signal enhancement.

Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

My major area is signal & image processing and machine learning. My research interests include medical imaging, image reconstruction, inverse problems, optimization, and deep learning.
