Short biography: I work on advancing optical imaging techniques for material metrology and biomedical applications that can improve our human life. Particularly, I am developing precision measurement tools that can enable me to collaborate with researchers and engineers to solve fundamental and/or practical problems. I obtained my PhD degree from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2014. Immediately following that, I took a postdoc position at MIT until May 2017. Since 2011, I have focused on developing physical imaging models and building laser interferometric imaging instruments for various applications. In total, I have contributed to > 30 journal papers and ~ 20 conference proceedings. Link for more detailed biography about me.
