Biography

Research

My main activities are imaging core management, research and education. My passion and interest lay in combining engineering, biology, and data science to achieve higher quality and faster speed quantitative imaging. I have been devoted to using my expertise in multimodal functional imaging and image analysis to facilitate biologists conducting imaging related projects, and innovating and expanding the technical and experimental capacities. I am currently working on applying novel computational tools such as deep neural network, unsupervised learning in image processing.
