Research Intereststop

I am undergraduate student majoring in mechanical engineering at UCLA. I was born in China and came to the states for college. In pursuit of more knowledge and hands-on research experience, I came to Dr. Ho’s lab in March 2013. I devote most of my time developing a SPIM (Single Plane Illumination Microscopy) system and its bio-application under guidance of Dr. Fei.


BS in Mechanical Engineering, UCLA, Expected June 2014
