Project Title/Research Interests: Leveraging Big Data, Deep Learning, Clinical Informatics and Advanced Image Processing to Build a Dynamic Cancer Visualization Framework, with goals to (1) improve delivery of care through enhancement of treatment decision making, and (2) optimize implementation and dissemination of pertinent medical information

Dr. Liu is a resident physician in Radiation Oncology at UCLA. She received her BS in Chemical Biology from UC Berkeley, with a minor in Global Poverty and Practice from the Blum Center for Developing Economies. Her work as the General Clinic Coordinator for the Suitcase Clinic, providing services for homeless and low-income individuals, revealed the importance of patient advocacy and translational research directed at improving patient care. She completed her medical training in the NIH T32-funded Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) at UC San Diego. Her Neurosciences PhD work, funded by an NIH/NIMH F30 individual NRSA training grant, focused on testing noninvasive functional neuroimaging methods to better understand the working human brain. Now as a CTSI TL1 Post-Doctoral Fellow, she is motivated to combine her research skills in image processing, biomedical statistics, and computer programming with her clinical interests in improving health equity and reducing barriers to care.
