I am a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University, working in Prof. Daniel Palanker lab. I am developing interferometric imaging techniques for the applications in multiple fields, including biomedical engineering, high-precision metrology and applied physics. Aiming at detecting nanometer-scale movements with sub-millisecond time resolution, high-speed interferometric imaging opens the door to imaging the electrical activities of electrogenic cells including cortical neurons, retinal ganglion cells and photoreceptors, without using fluorescent dyes or genetic markers. In addition, it allows precise power titration in therapeutic approaches such as non-damaging retinal laser therapy. Please see my research page for more details.

I will join the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering (SCBE) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as an assistant professor in Spring 2021.
