Dr Zhang completed her PhD in astronomy and astrophysics with Professor Bob Abraham at the University of Toronto studying galaxy evolution and formation and low surface brightness imaging. By combining low surface brightness optical images with radio and UV data, Dr Zhang was able to study the outskirts of local galaxies and study disk formation and evolution. With the Noble Group, Dr Zhang plans to apply her imaging skills at the macro-scale to imaging problems in the micro-scale for medical imaging applications. Specifically, she will explore fetal development through machine learning and imaging analysis.
