Ji Yi, PhD

Dr. Ji Yi currently is an assistant professor at Boston University School of Medicine.  His research area is to develop novel optical imaging methods for biomedical applications, and in particular early detection of chronic diseases such as glaucoma.  He obtained his BS from Tsinghua University, and trained in biomedical engineering at Northwestern University.  After his PhD, he continued his postdoctoral training at Northwestern University before joining Boston University.  

He is an expert in the field of biomedical optics.  He has pioneered and patented several novel imaging techniques, including visible light OCT (vis-OCT), as well as inverse spectroscopic OCT (IS-OCT) which are two cornerstones of this study.  The major body of his work has resulted in more than 40 peer-reviewed publications in high-quality journals, five approved/pending U.S. patents and numerous international oral conference presentations.
