Dr. Yi Sun received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 1982 and 1985, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, in 1997.

From 1985 to 1993, Dr. Sun was a lecturer at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, where he developed theory and techniques of image processing, pattern recognition, and artificial neural networks. In the summer of 1993, as a visiting scientist at the Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, he carried out research in machinery fault diagnosis and prediction. From March to September 1997, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, where he developed MRA imaging algorithms and theory. In the period of October 1997 to August 1998, as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, he studied in the area of wireless communications. Since September 1998, Dr. Sun has been an Assistant Professor now with tenure in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the City College of City University of New York.

Dr. Sun’s research interests have been in modeling, parameter detection and estimation, algorithm development, and performance analysis in various human-designed and biomedical systems by means of signal processing, image processing, probability and statistics, and information theory. His research previously focused on image processing, wireless communications, and robotic searching, and now focuses on biomedical nanoscopy, quantitative bioimaging, and biomedical optics.
