Yuan Feng is a tenure-track Associate Professor of the Biomedical Engineering Department at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. His primary research interests are combining magnetic resonance imaging and biomechanics in understanding brain and liver diseases.  He is particularly interested in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), tissue elastography, and image-guided diagnosis and intervention. His lab studies developing novel MRI techniques to measure biomarkers based on biomechanics principles. Other work focuses on developing MRI guided neurological surgery.

Dr. Yuan Feng holds B.S. and M.S. from Harbin Institute of Technology in China, and a Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis. His postdoctoral training was at Washington University School of Medicine and at the University of Texas at Austin. He was a faculty member at Soochow University from late 2014 to 2017. Since 2018 he moved to Shanghai Jiao Tong University and joined the School of Biomedical Engineering. He is a licensed professional engineer in the State of Missouri and a member of ISMRM, ASME and NSPE.
