Biography

After graduateing with a Master of Engineering degree from the University of Queensland in 2010, Mingyan decided to pursue his PhD in the biomedical engineering group. HHe investigated issues of ultra-high field Magnetic Resonance Imaging and developed novel rotating radiofrequency technique to solve these issues. This technique has attracted wide attention.
