I am a Ph.D. student in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I obtained my B.E. degree in 2017 from the Southeast University and my M.S. degree in 2018 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

I am in Song Lab @ UIUC and advised by Prof. Pengfei Song. Currently my research interests include 3D ultrafast ultrasound imaging, deep learning in ultrasond, and medical imaging processing.


Aug 3, 2023 Thrilled to see that our FASTER 3D imaging work is featured on the cover of the IEEE TUFFC journal!
FASTER journal cover
May 23, 2023 Check out our latest preprint introducing a novel 3D shear wave elastography (SWE) method based on 2D row-column-addressing (RCA) array. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time that acoustic radiation force-based 3D SWE is demonstrated on 2D RCAs.
