Qianqian Fang was born in Anyang, Henan, China, in 1976. He received the B.Eng. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), Chengdu, Sichuan, China, and Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering in 2005 at Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College, USA. From 1997 to 2000, he was a Research Assistant with the microwave and computational electromagnetics labs, UESTC, working with millimeter microwave switch and finite difference-time domain (FDTD) simulations for EM pulse well-logging. From 2000 to 2005, he has been a Research Assistant in microwave imaging group at Dartmouth College, developing tomographic microwave imaging for breast cancer detection, particularly focusing on fast three-dimensional forward and reconstruction algorithms. From 2005 to 2009, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), MA, USA, performing studies in near-infrared tomographic breast imaging and brain functional imaging. He is currently an Instructor at MGH and Harvard Medical School. His current research interests include multi-modality imaging, translational near-infrared breast cancer imaging, microwave tomography, compression-induced tissue dynamics and massively parallel computing using graphics processing units (GPU) for medical imaging applications.
