Dr. Rui Zheng received her bachelor and master degree from Department of Engineering Physics in Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2000 and 2002 respectively. She received her PhD degree in Physics and Biomedical engineering from University of Alberta, Alberta, Canada in 2011. Between May, 2012 and April 2013, she was a postdoctoral fellow in Laboratory of Mechanics and Acoustics–CNRS, Marseille, France. In 2013-2017, she worked as research associate in Department of surgery, University of Alberta and Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, Alberta Health Services, Alberta, Canada. In March of 2018, she joined in the School of Information Science and Technology in Shanghai Tech University as a tenure track assistant professor, PI.
