Projects per year
David Li is a senior lecturer in optoelectronics at the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He received his PhD in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University. He then joined the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan, as an R&D engineer working on 1.25-12.5Gbps optical communication chipsets and wireless communication IP, knowledge transfer, and international joint projects (with 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.
In 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, digital signal processing, mixed-signal integrated circuits, fluorescence-based sensing systems, and artificial intelligence. He has been working with researchers within the UK and overseas, such as the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, France, China, the USA, and Taiwan.

Available Studentships for 2023:
3-year PhD studentships in time-resolved spectroscopy/imaging and machine-learning techniques for biomedical applications are expected to start on 1st October 2023.
Candidates interested in these projects could send CVs and transcripts to him for further discussion.
