Dr Lee, Wei-Ning 李維寧
Wei-Ning Lee received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan) in 2001 and 2003, respectively, and her Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from Columbia University (New York, NY, USA) in 2010. Part of the dissertation work on the in vivo large animal study of imaging myocardial deformation with ultrasound under graded myocardial ischemia won her a New Investigator Award at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) Annual Convention in New York in 2009. From 2010 January to 2012 June, she pursued her postdoctoral training at Institut Langevin in ESPCI ParisTech (Paris, France), where she developed a novel ultrasound-based elastic tensor imaging technique to map the myocardial fibers. Dr. Lee joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and the Medical Engineering Program, at the University of Hong Kong as an Assistant Professor in September in 2012 and is currently Associate Professor. Her main research interests include novel medical ultrasound techniques: ultrafast ultrasound imaging, strain imaging and shear wave imaging, cardiovascular imaging, mechanics, and perfusion, and musculoskeletal ultrasound. She is a member of the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society. She currently serves on the International Adivsory Board of Physics in Medicine and Biology and Academic Editor of Plos One. She received an Early Career Award from 2013/14 Hong Kong Research Grants Council.
