After receiving my engineering degree from Tsinghua University, I worked for eight years as a communication engineer and later as a graduate student in the Biophysics Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Science. My multidisciplinary education and experiences have provided me with a broad background to conduct sophisticated biophysics research.
Postdoctoral in MRI/MRS, John Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, 1988-1991
PhD, Biochemistry, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, 1985
MS program, Biophysics, Biophysics Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing, China, 1980
BS, Electronics, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 1970
My research focuses on improving and developing advanced MRI acquisition and data analysis techniques to measure brain functional and structural network organizations.
I have the following NIH-funded research projects:
- Alzheimer's Disease Connectome Project
NIH/NIA (MPI study with Barbara Bendlin, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
The long-term goal of this project is to apply the Human Connectome Project data collection protocol and develop robust technology to accurately stage Alzheimer's disease across the full spectrum of its progression on an individual subject basis. Interested in participating?
- Network-Level Mechanisms for Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease Development
The overall goal of this project is to examine the neural-network-damaging processes during AD progression to yield insights into the APOE–Age–AD relationships by mathematically modeling the Age–AD two-dimensional space.
