Simon(Chengxi) Zeng

I am a first-year Ph.D student at Visual Information Lab, University of Bristol, where I am supervised by Dr Alberto Gambaruto and Dr Tilo Burghardt. We are involved in a NIHR-funded project on Swallowing Rehabilitation. My part of work focuses on Medical Image Processing using Deep Learning and Computational Fluids Dynamics using Meshless method.

At Bristol, I also acquired a broad set of skills and subspecialities from my MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering. My undergraduate dissertation is exhibited on Faculty page. Extracurricularily, I served as the President of the Chinese Students & Scholars Association and awarded as President of Excellence by the Embassy of China. And I co-founded an online Education platform - Erdemy Education and it’s been endorsed by Basecamp Enterprise Team from university and granted by UKVI.

Projects

My research spans the areas of Computer Vision(Medical Image Processing), Math(Meshless Approximation), Physics(Fluids Dynamics) and Human Physiology( Swallowing Difficulty) .

Pharynx and Bolus segmentation using Deep Learning and Swallowing Simulation using Smoothed Particle Dynamics(SPH)
Chengxi Zeng, Alberto Gambaruto, Tilo Burghardt

We investigate the physics of swallowing mechanism by employing deep learning techniques to segment crucial physical boundaries and liquid bolus. And we build up workflow from processing original medical image to fluids dynamics analysis.

Portable AED Delivery Emergency Drone (Patent under review)
Chengxi Zeng, Yuhang Ming, Mengxun Bai, Ruobing Li

We are developing an Emergency drone that delivers medical kits and portable AED that would save lifes in jammed cities and remote areas. This project collborates with Hangzhou Municipal Health Commision and the drone will work with local Emergency Response Unit.

Extended work for Analysis of Coral using Deep Learning
Chengxi Zeng, Tilo Burghardt

We investigated the efficacy of deep learning architectures such as U-Net on such image stacks in order to find and measure important features in coral skeletons automatically.

Solving Partial Differential Equations using Radial Basis Functions
Chengxi Zeng, Andreas Michael, Celia Tugores-Bonilla, Natasha Moore, Jules Boisser, Alberto Gambaruto

We discretise standard Partial Differential Equations(PDEs) using Radial Basis Functions, aiming to assess their performance compared to the analytical results and alternative discretisation methods.

Pedestrian Level wind assessment with CFD simulation
Chengxi Zeng, Alberto Gambaruto

We modelled Bristol city centre area and applied CFD simulation with focus on high wind speed area and presented the advantage of trees to mitigate wind using Porous Media approach.
