Shuailong Zhang - Postdoctoral Fellow

shuailong[dot]zhang[at]utoronto[dot]ca

Shuailong received his B.Eng. in electronics engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, China, in 2010. After that, he went to Glasgow (Scotland) and received his PhD from Institute of Photonics, University of Strathclyde at 2015. His PhD was primarily concerned with the characterization of III-nitride micro-sized light-emitting diodes (micro-LEDs). Another focus of my PhD is on the photonic system integration of III-nitride micro-LEDs with specifically-designed CMOS electronics for practical applications such as optical communications, micro-display and lab-on-chip optical sensing. After completing his PhD, Shuailong joined in the School of Engineering, University of Glasgow as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant. For this position, he used a touch-less opto-electro-microfluidic micromanipulation technique known as optoelectronic tweezers (OET) to assemble nanowires, metallic beads, micro-lasers for the construction of novel optoelectronic device and photonic platform. After one and a half year working at University of Glasgow, Shuailong joined in the Wheeler microfluidics group on Feb 2017.

In his spare time, Shuailong enjoys travelling to different countries and tasting food from all over the world. He is a big fan of football (soccer) and loves outdoor sport (hiking, climbing, etc.). He is also a semi-professional chief and enjoys cooking food for his friends.
