Advanced Imaging and Sensing Lab

Laboratory for Advanced Imaging and Sensing in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Houston is directedly by Prof. Xiaonan Shan. In our lab, we develop different types of  imaging and sensing techniques for various applications. The techniques we are using is mostly based on optical imaging, optical spectroscopy, electromagnetic sensing, and chemical sensing. We apply them to study the chemical, physical, and electrical responses in energy storage and conversion process, biological processes, subsurface sensing, smart sensing for infrastructure, and environmental sensing. 


Position Available:

The lab has a Ph.D. position starting in Fall 2023. The research will focus on using the optical imaging and spectrometry method to study the battery reactions and also develop sensors. Hope the student has a master’s degree and research experience, material engineering and optical imaging background will be encouraged. If you are interested, please send your resume to
