Brief Biography

I received both my Bachelor and Master degrees in Electrical Engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University, and PhD in Fibre Optics with Prof Chao Lu from Nanyang Technological University. This was followed by a five-year postdoctoral training on optical chemical sensors and spectroscopy with Prof Stephen Elliott in Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, where I was also an elected College Postdoctoral Research Associate of Hughes Hall. After that, I spent one and a half years on biomedical optics and tissue fusion with Prof Dan Elson and Prof George Hanna at St Mary's Hospital and Imperial College London. Prior to this appointment, I was an academic member in the School of EEECS at the University of Liverpool.

PhD Studentship Available: Funding available for PhD applicants in biomedical optics, optical sensing, fibre optics or imaging. Interesting applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Lei Su as soon as possible.
