Simon X. Han

PhD Student

  • UCLA Bioengineering


Simon has worked on numerous projects in MII, such as observational databases for various cancer patients, system for assessing the concordance between radiology findings and pathology findings, and lung cancer disease modeling. Currently, Simon is investigating sequential decision making in a breast cancer screening context.
