Director: Ruikang (Ricky) Wang
Prof. Ricky Wang graduated from Tianjin University in 1988 with a B.Eng. in Manufacturing Engineering (with an emphasis on precision instruments), and continuing at Tianjin University, he completed his M.Sc. degree in Precision Measurement and Instrumentation in 1990. He then moved to Scotland for his research in optical information processing with Professor Chris Chatwin at Glasgow University, for which he received his PhD in 1995. After two years postdoctoral research training at Glasgow, he joined as a Lecturer, and then, Senior Lecturer in Bioimaging Science with Keele Medical School, England. In 2002, he became a chair professor in Biomedical Optics with Cranfield University, England, where he created and directed Biophotonics and Imaging Laboratory. In 2005, he joined Oregon Health and Science University, Oregon, as a full professor in Biomedical Engineering, where he was the Director of Biophotonics and Imaging Laboratory. Currently, Prof Wang is a full professor with appointments in the Departments of Bioengineering and Ophthalmology at the University of Washington, and directs the Biophontonics and Imaging Laboratory. He is an elected fellow of Optical Society of America (OSA), International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) and American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). His current research interests include biophotonics and imaging, optical coherence tomography, optical microangiography, photoacoustic imaging and their applications in neurology, ophthalmology, dermatology and cancer.
