Mr Yuhao Sun


I’m Yuhao Sun (he/him), currently a third-year PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. I have a very interdisciplinary background, with two main topics which are computer science and medicine. My main research interests are biomedical informatics and human-computer interaction. My studies at Edinburgh are fully funded by the China Scholarships Council & the University of Edinburgh PhD Scholarship.

I spend my free time powerlifting and obstacle course racing.
