About me: 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/imaging tools that can enable us to solve fundamental and/or practical problems that often requires interdisciplinary collaborations. I obtained my doctoral degree from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2014. Before joining CUHK, I took a postdoc training at MIT between 2014 to 2017. Over the past 9 years, I have focused on developing physical imaging models and building laser interferometric imaging instruments for various imaging and metrology applications. I contributed to > 30 journal papers and > 30 conference proceedings.

Apart from research, I am very keen in promoting optical sciences and optical technologies to raise their awareness among the general public. I delivered about 20 research seminars at different universities between 2016-2018. As a recipient of SPIE Optics and Photonics Scholarship, I organized iOptics seminar series at UIUC while I was a graduate student. I strongly advocate interdisciplinary research, for which reason I was awarded a Beckman Institute Fellowship from 2013-2014. To provide equal research opportunities, I have mentored students of very diverse background throughout the years since I was a graduate student.

I am a Senior Member of OSA and Member of SPIE and IEEE Photonics Society. I am currently serving as the treasurer for IEEE Photonics Society Hong Kong Chapter and a SPIE Scholarship Committee member. Click here for my full CV.
