About me

I major in control and dynamical systems, and focus on system control for laser sintering. Prior to my PhD, I was a software engineer in industrial automation for 2 years, working on control algorithm development and signal processing.

My primary research interest is at the intersection of control theory and micro-scale systems in applications of mechantronics and clinical practice. Basically, I focus on applications where control can improve and allow new system capability. I excel at system integration and prototyping, interfacing hardware with software using mathematical modeling, control theory, and algorithms.


My recent project was to study the physics behind optical tissue microdissection that improves the accuracy of cancer diagnosis. The goal is to optimize the microdissection process and avoid damaging the cells by over-heating. The above figures show how temperature of a target cell can be excited in a moving light source. More details can be seen at the poster.
