David is a senior lecturer in photonics/electronics. He received his PhD in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University. He then joined the SoC Technology Center (now Information and Communications Research Laboratories), 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 ECE, Carnegie Mellon University, 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 from within the UK and from Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, France, China, USA, and Taiwan.
