Dr. Chaofeng Ye received Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Michigan State University, USA, in 2016 and M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Tsinghua University, China, in 2008. He worked in the department of electrical engineering of Tsinghua University from 2008 to 2013 and in Michigan State University as a Postdoc from 2016-2017.  His main research areas include non-destructive testing (finite element method simulation, R&D of new array sensors), bio-electromagnetic measurement (magnetoencephalography, magnetic nanoparticle imaging, multi-mode brain-computer interface), electromagnetic precision measurement (optical pumped atomic magnetometer, magnetoresistance sensor, fluxgate sensor), intelligent image and signal processing (source imaging, intelligent identification and quantification, inversion and reconstruction), etc.. He has published more than 30 papers, and authorized 2 USA patents and 3 Chinese patents. After joining ShanghaiTech University, he has been granted more than 6 million RMB research funding. He is the instructor of the courses: electric circuit (undergraduate) and electromagnetic sensing and testing (graduate), which have achieved positive feedbakc from the students. He serves as a reviewer for journals: IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS, IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MAGNETICS and NDT & E INTERNATIONAL, etc.
