My research interest lies in developing new imaging techniques for applications in materials and biological science in both nano-scale and macro-scale. I’m particularly interested in computational imaging, i. e., replacing optical imaging hardware with sophisticated algorithms. I have invented a modulation-based coherent imaging technique (CMI), which is able to solve many issues of current coherent diffraction imaging - a lensless imaging technique that is under rapid development worldwide. Currently, I am trying to implement this technique with various kinds of coherent radiation sources.
