Dr. Gao received his bachelor degree in Microelectronics from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2009, and PhD degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2015. He joined School of Information Science and Technology, ShanghaiTech University as an assistant professor in Jan. 2017, and established Hybrid Imaging System Laborotary. During his PhD study, he has received Integrated circuits scholarship from Singapore government, and Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad (2014). His PhD thesis was selected as Springer Thesis Award 2016. He worked as postdoctoral researcher in Nanyang Technological University and Stanford University in 2015-2016. He has published about 50 journal papers on top journals, such as Sci. Rep., Adv. Func. Mat., Nano Energy, Small, Nanoscale, Photoacoustics, APL, JAP, OL, OE, JBiop, Med. Phys., IEEE TBME, IEEE TMI, IEEE JSTQE, IEEE TCASII, IEEE Sens. J., IEEE Photon. J., IEEE Sens. Lett., ACS Sens., APL Photon. He also has more than 50 top conference papers published in MICCAI, ISBI, ISCAS, BioCAS, EMBC, IUS etc. He has one paper selected as oral presentation in MICCAI2019 (53 out of 1700 submissions). In 2017, he was awarded the Shanghai Eastern Scholar Professorship. In 2018, he received excellent research award from ShanghaiTech University. As PI, he received research grant from NSFC. His interdisciplinary research topics include hybrid imaging physics, biomedical and clinical applications, as well as biomedical circuits, systems and algorithm design. In 2019, his lab has established technology transfer regulations and fund, accelerating the commercialization of research outcome.
