I am a graduate student working at Focused Ultrasound Laboratory at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. I am pursuing my PhD in Electrical Engineering at Tufts University for my work in acoustic signal processing, specifically in cavitation-based control and imaging of microbubble-mediated ultrasound therapy. I am advised by Prof. Nathan McDannold and Prof. Eric Miller.
Prior to my study in Boston, I received my B.S. in Acoustics at Nanjing University and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University. My undergraduate research focused on noninvasive ambient pressure measurement using contrast microbubbles (supervised by Prof. Dong Zhang). In September 2011, I joined Prof. Katherine Ferrara's lab as an exchange student in UC Davis, where I worked on modeling the dynamics of bubble clouds. My gradute research at Columbia was on the investigation of cavitation monitoring during ultrasound-induced blood-brain barrier opening (supervised by Prof. Elisa Konofagou).
