Photoacoustic microscopy, photoacoustic computed tomography, ultrafast real-time spectroscopy and microscopy
Terence Tsz Wai Wong received his BEng and MPhil degrees both from the University of Hong Kong in 2011 and 2013, respectively, under the supervision of Prof Kevin K M Tsia. He studied in Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) and Medical Engineering at California Institute of Technology (Caltech), under the tutelage of Prof Lihong V Wang (member of National Academy of Engineering) for his PhD degree. He is now an Assistant Professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) under the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE).
Terence’s research interests broadly include developing photoacoustic devices to enable label-free and high-speed histology-like imaging, three-dimensional whole organ imaging, low-cost deep tissue imaging, and implementing ultra-fast real-time spectroscopy and microscopy. His latest research in realizing label-free multilayered histology was highly and widely publicized on both campuses (WUSTL and Caltech) and in the public media worldwide. His previous research in ultrafast optofluidic imaging technology, named “ATOM”, was also widely covered by local media and scientific magazines. Terence is an author or co-author of over 30 publications in peer-reviewed journals (including Nature Methods, Nature Communications and Science Advances), conference papers, and book chapters, and has one patent pending.
