Graduated with Ph.D.

He received his  BS and MS degrees in 2001 from the Department of Engineering Physics at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. Subsequently he became a graduate student at the University of Michigan in the Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences department.

His  research included muon tracking in semiconductor gamma-ray detectors, gamma-ray polarimetry detection,  Compton image reconstruction using 3D position-sensitive CdZnTe detectors, energy-imaging integrated system modeling for Compton cameras, and gamma-ray detection sensitivity improvement using imaging capability.
