Personal profile

Personal Statement

David Li is a senior lecturer in photonics/electronics. He received his PhD in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University. He then joined the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan, as a R&D engineer working on 1.25-12.5Gbps optical communication chipsets and wireless communication IP, knowledge transfer, and international joint projects with the Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA.

From 2007 to 2011, he worked at the Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems, University of Edinburgh, on the European projects "MEGAFRAME" and "METOXIA" for CMOS single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) based fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) cameras and analogue front-end circuits. He has invented several hardware-embedded imaging processors which resulted in the first video-rate FLIM imaging on CMOS SPAD arrays.

From January 2014, he joined the Centre for Biophotonics, SIPBS, after his first lecturing position in biomedical engineering and embedded systems at the School of Engineering and Informatics, University of Sussex (where he led a research team working on industry-funded projects).

His current research interests include CMOS imaging and sensor systems, embedded systems and GPU computing, digital signal processing, mixed-signal integrated circuits, fluorescence based sensing systems, electrical impedance sensing systems, forward models of electrical impedance tomography, finite-element/finite-difference and numerical modelling. He has been working with researchers within the UK and from oversea such as Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, France, China, USA, and Taiwan.

David would be delighted to collaborate with colleagues or hear from potential PhD candidates interested in exploring any aspect of imaging/sensing and embedded systems research.

 

Available Studentships:

David has secured four 3-year PhD studentships in time-resolved spectroscopy/imaging and high-precision time-resolved measurements, and we would expect to start the projects from 1st November 2020

Candidates interested in these projects could send CVs and transcripts to him for further discussions.
