Shanghai UEG Medical Imaging Equipment Co., Ltd, Shanghai, China Dental Panoramic & CT Imaging Algorithm May 2017-July 2017

Optimized dental panoramic imaging processing, and transformed into GPU-accelerated computing (saved 45 seconds) for real-time display.

Validated and integrated sensor calibration for dental cone-beam CT imaging processing, which significantly reduced visual artifacts.


University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI

Current Mapping using MRI Dec 2016-Apr 2017

Designed MRI experiments to detect magnetic field difference (10^-6 Gauss) induced by transcranial direct current stimulation (3 mA), and reconstructed the current density from phantom.

Verified the feasibility of mapping current pathway inside phantom. Epileptic Seizure Alarm Sep 2016-Dec 2016

Applied electromyography(EMG) to alert seizures, by monitoring the high-frequency components (100- 500Hz) of EMG signal from patients’ muscle.

Built signal acquiring circuits with LED and buzzer, also connected with LabVIEW for signal processing. Shanghai University, Shanghai, China

A Design of Spectral Imaging Based on DMD Chips Jun 2014-Mar 2016

Established a Single-Pixel Imaging System and verified its efficiency of Compressive Sensing both on computer modeling and optics platform, reconstructed images with less than 25% of original data.

Succeeded in the reconstruction of 64*64 fluorescent object under low-light circumstance (10^-4 lux), with self-designed fast light detector (2 kHz) and the structural imitation of fluorescent microscope. Arrow Cup Innovation Lab Oct 2014-Jun 2015

Finalized a self-balancing vehicle with camera and several sensors, which was capable of video and data wireless transmission under audio control from Matlab.

Invented a self-balance platform for unknown equipment (max 0.5 kg) without the adjustment of parameter. Electronic Design Training Camp Feb 2015-Jun 2015

During the fast-paced training program, our team developed high performance circuits like ohm meter which can measure resistance at 10^-6 ohm level with less than 5% error. PUBLICATION
