Xuying Xin is a post doc in the Cheng Lab. She is on the Computational Phenomics project, working on the synchrotron micro CT imaging of zebrafish, its image visualization and image analysis.
Her background is Optical Physics, specifically ultrafast spectroscopy and lasers. She has worked in a photonics lab for five years and developed a terahertz time-domain spectrometer. With this device, she obtained and analyzed the absorption spectrum of different chemicals at room temperature. She is now extending her background to micro CT imaging for biomedical research.
Her research interests include the applications of the synchrotron micro CT imaging to the morphological phenotyping of zebrafish at different ages, both wild type and mutants. Arabidopsis, a plant model organism, is also a part of her study.
Xuying Xin earned her PhD and Master Degrees in Optical Physics from the City University of New York in 2007, and she earned her bachelor’s degree of engineering from Chongqing University, Sichuan, China in 1999.
