Research Expertise:
Fiber-Optic Communication, Photonic Neural Networks, Optical Imaging

My research is to design and make optical systems and photonic devices for the applications of communication, signal processing and especially neuromorphic computing, as well as microscopic imaging. The photonic methods process signals at the speed of light with low latencies. By using the photonic methods to achieve the functions of artificial neuron network, deep learning algorithm can be performed at high speeds.
