Lab: Health Informatics Privacy Labotary (Hiplab)


Introduction

I am Wen Zhang, a fourth year PhD student with Vanderbilt University. I am working as a research assistant in Health Informatics Privacy Labotary, and supervised by Professor Malin. I obtained bachelor's degree in software engineering (2006) and master's degree in automation (2009) from University of Science and Technology of China. I started my PhD study in Vanderbilt from 2010. My research interests include information security, machine learning and biomedical informatics. Currently I am working on the project of Experienced Based Access Management (EBAM).
