Long-Yin Lo

M.Phil. student

Research directions:     Automation and non-destructive evaluation

Long-Yin Lo received his B.Eng. degree in Electrical Engineering from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) in 2019. After graduated, he participated in the developments of an inspection robot for generator and a train monitoring system as a research assistant for two years. These experiences brought him into the engineering design and application field. He is currently developing an in-pipe ultrasonic inspection robots.

Research direction:     Ultrasound transducer for non-destructive evaluation

Elmer achieved distinction in MSc Mechanical Engineering from Glasgow Caledonian University. He has a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering with thorough hands-on experience in design, manufacturing and testing from Airbus Defence and Space in Germany. His aspirations lied in progressing his engineering career through pursuit of specialist training and research at PhD level in the field of ultrasonics and achieve Chartership status with the IMechE. Elmer is currently investigating how an innovative and highly flexible ultrasound array transducer can be employed to inspect challenging industrial components. His hobbies include Muay Thai, swimming, camping, hiking and reading.

Postgraduate Research StudentS

Riqiang LIN

Ph.d. student
E-mail:     riqiang33.lin@connect.polyu.hk

Research direction:     Multi-modality imaging

Mr. Lin received his M.Sc. and B.S. degrees in Shenzhen University. Since joined the Institute of Biomedical and Health Engineering of Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) in 2011, he has focused in the research of photoacoustic imaging, and developed a series of novel photoacoustic system including optical resolution (OR) and acoustic resolution (AR) photoacoustic microscopy, and full field-of-view photoacoustic endoscopy. Currently, he works on the development of intravascular photoacoustic (IVPA) catheters.

Joseph kinney

E-mail:     2838643k@student.gla.ac.uk

Research direction:     Ultrasonic transducers for skin imaging

Joe achieved his BSc in physics with medial physics from Cardiff in 2021 and his distinction in medical radiation physics from Swansea in 2022. His previous research topics include using Monte Carlo simulations to optimise radiation detector efficiency and investigating the effect of flattening filters on leakage radiation from a LINAC. Joe is currently working with the Hungarian company Dermus to produce high frequency ultrasound transducers for skin imaging, with current emphasis on Lead free transducers.
