Lipeng received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2013 from University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN. He obtained his M.S. and B.S. from Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, China, in 2008 and 2006, respectively. He joined the Psychiatry and Neuroimaging Laboratory as a postdoctoral research fellow in Dec. 2013.

His research interests lie in developing imaging tools for analyzing brain structures and functions. His focus is on applying and developing techniques in signal processing and control theory for solving problems in medical imaging. He has developed tools for reconstructing signals in diffusion MRI that have demonstrated advantages in analyzing brain structures. He also has developed novel acquisition methods for high-resolution diffusion MRI. He is currently working on developing models for charactering tissue microstructures from diffusion MRI measurements using concepts from control theory.
