I’m Yuhao Sun, currently a PhD Candidate at the Roslin Institute and the Institute for Design Informatics, at the University of Edinburgh. I have an interdisciplinary background, with two main topics which are computer science and medicine. My main research interests are biomedical informatics and human-computer interaction in healthcare. My studies at Edinburgh are fully funded by the China Scholarships Council & the University of Edinburgh PhD Scholarship. I’m supervised by Prof Albert Tenesa and Prof John Vines jointly.

Previously I graduated with MRes (Distinction) Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Intervention, at the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery (at the Department of Surgery & Cancer), Imperial College London, in November 2021. I focused on the MRes project entitled Microrobots for Precision Medicine, which was supervised by Dr Meysam Keshavarz, Dr Jang Ah Kim, and Dr Alex Thompson.

I received BSc (Honours) Information and Computing Science degrees from the University of Liverpool (Liverpool, UK) and Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (Suzhou, China) in 2020 summer. My dissertation, Predict the Impact of Visual Distortion on Medical Images, which was led by Dr Gabriela Mogos, received 75/100 (First Class).

I am a Teaching Assistant at the University of Edinburgh. I have some industrial experience, including acting as a product manager at Ping An Tech during the 2020 summer. I am also interested in consulting roles.
