Research Focus:

Multiscale observation from subcellular structures to organs may lead to great breakthroughs in life science. However, it has long been restricted by the space-bandwidth product, optical aberrations, phototoxicity, and so on. I have been focusing on the great challenge of intravital mesoscale imaging and devoted myself to the interdisciplinary study of computational imaging and multiscale understanding of complicated biological phenomena. I have proposed a series of new microscopic imaging framework including camera-array-based gigapixel mesoscale microscopy, and scanning light field microscopy to overcome the barriers of intravital imaging, with orders of magnitude improvement in spatiotemporal resolution, imaging data throughput, and orders of magnitude reduction in phototoxicity for long-term observations. My study opens up a new horizon for the study of large-scale intercellular interactions in mammals. However, there remains great data challenges for analyzing and modeling the multiscale behaviors of the living systems spanning organelles, cells, tissue, and organs. Therefore, my future work plans to develop better intravital mesoscale imaging instruments and data analysis platforms for diverse applications in neuroscience, oncology, and immunology, especially for the neural coding mechanism on the basis of millions of neurons.

Using light as the information carrier and optical or electrical high-dimensional modulation structures as the basic unit, computations are achieved through controlled propagation of light. After more than half a century of development, constructing hierarchical optical neural networks, performing intelligent computing tasks, obtaining results through photoelectric conversion, structure as function, and propagation as computation is the latest frontier. Our vision is to develop large-scale, reconfigurable, nonlinear optoelectronic computing systems, break through the limitations of electronic computing power, and build the cornerstone of a new generation of intelligent computing.
