Hello. I am Qiao Jin, an M.D. candidate from Tsinghua University. I am interested in applying NLP techniques to biomedicine.

Currently, I am studying clinical medicine and rotating as an intern doctor at the Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH, the best hospital in China). I also work with Prof. Sheng Yu from Tsinghua University and colleagues from Alibaba DAMO Academy on a part-time basis.

Previously, I spent two wonderful years at the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh as a visiting research scholar. I was fortunate to be supervised by Prof. Xinghua Lu from Pitt, as well as Prof. William W. Cohen and Dr. Bhuwan Dhingra from CMU. My research focused on biomedical NLP, mainly using the PubMed corpus for tasks like document classification (AttentionMeSH), disambiguation (DECBAE), pre-training language models (BioELMo) and question answering (PubMedQA).

I am expecting to earn my M.D. degree in June 2022 and I am looking for post-doc positions on biomedical NLP.

Clinical Medicine

Overall GPA ranking 1 / 32

I am at the 8-year B.Sc. + M.D. program of Tsinghua University, where students spend the first 3 years at Tsinghua studying basic sciences, the middle 2 years at Pitt doing biomedical research and the final 3 years at PUMCH doing clinical intership. This program was initiated by Prof. Yigong Shi, a great influencer of me.

2014 - 2022 (expected)
