Professor Yan's research interests span a wide range of disciplines, including modeling, imaging, and analysis of biosignals and medical images for diverse biomedical applications. Presently, her research is primarily dedicated to leveraging machine learning and deep learning technologies for the early detection of various diseases. These include the identification of vocal pathologies, cardiac arrhythmia, and skin cancer, as well as the classification and localization of brain aneurysms, breast cancer, and multiple rib fractures using MRA, ultrasound, and CT imaging modalities. These projects are conducted in collaboration with a team of skilled radiologists based at the Santa Clara Valley Hospital.
