Brief Biography

I received both my Bachelor and Master degrees in Electrical Engineering with Prof Xiaolong Cao 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 a 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 studentships and Postdoctoral Positions are available.
CSC PhD applications are welcome.
Happy to support potential Marie Curie Fellowship and other Fellowship applications.
