Xiaohong Sui is the Associate Professor of School of Biomedical Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Her primary research interests focus on electrical neuromodulation and neural interface technologies together with their application in artificial tactile sensation, diagnosing and treatment of non-communicable disease such as hypertension, and visual restoration etc. These technologies include implantable neural electrodes, neural interface computational modelling, and in-vivo animal electrophysiological experiments. Now she is also interested in analyzing neural signals through deep learning methods.

Dr. Sui graduated with a bachelor degree in 2001, and a master degree in 2004, both in Microelectronics and Solid-State Electronics. Then in 2007, she obtained her Ph.D. degree in Microelectronics and Solid-State Electronics from Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Then, Dr. Sui has been a faculty member at Shanghai Jiao Tong University since March 2007, and she was promoted as an associate professor in Jan. 2016. Between Sep. 2014 and Aug. 2015, Dr. Sui was as a visiting assistant professor to do research on neural interface at Department of Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) with Prof. Dominique Durand as her supervisor. Dr. Sui was awarded “Excellent Young Scholar at SJTU” in 2008 and 2013. She teaches the course “Neural Interface Technology” for post graduates. She contributes to review work on journal and conference papers including IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, Sensors, Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Int. Conf. of IEEE EMBC, Int. Conf. of IEEE EMBC on Neural Interface, Int. Conf. of IEEE BioCAS, etc.
