Hua Guo, PhD

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

Dr. Hua Guo is a principle investigator at Center for Biomedical Imaging Research, Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. He received his Ph.D. from the department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University in 2006. After that, He worked as a full-time MR research and application specialist with Siemens Healthcare. Then he worked as a postdoc at the University of Hong Kong. Before he joined Tsinghua University, he was an assistant professor in department of radiology of New York University from 2008 to 2010. He has extensive research experience in MRI physics, advanced imaging method development and preclinical studies. His primary research interest focuses on two core areas in MRI. The first one is MRI physics including novel sequence design and image reconstruction, which can potentially provide high spatiotemporal resolution and multi-parametric quantitative imaging. Particularly, he is working on high resolution diffusion weighted imaging at present. The second area is the translational application of advanced MRI techniques for accurate diagnosis and disease management.
