Yiying Zhu is a postdoctoral fellow in the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where she works in the Ultrasound Imaging and Therapeutics Research Laboratory.
Yiying received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering (2017) and M.S.E. in Electrical Engineering (2013) both from the University of Michigan, where she was recipient of the Endowment for the Development of Graduate Education (2016) recognizing the impact of her dissertation research. She received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Birmingham (UK), and B.S.E. in Telecommunication Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China) in 2011.
Yiying’s research interest is to develop advanced imaging techniques using ultrasound together with light and nanotechnology. Her projects include combined laser and ultrasound elasticity imaging system development, ultrasound-guided photoacoustic imaging for noninvasive detection of metastatic lymph nodes, ultrasound ultrafast imaging on laser-activated nanodroplets for molecular imaging and noninvasive longitudinal monitoring enabled 3D printed constructs.
Yiying enjoys doing Yoga in her spare time and traveling around. Fun fact about her is that she is very picky at her ice-cream color – cream color only regardless of the flavor.
