Dr. Guoan Zheng is currently the UTC Associate Professor at the University of Connecticut, with a joint appointment from the Biomedical Engineering Department and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
Dr. Zheng's expertise includes microscopy, ptychography, optical engineering, biophotonics, computational imaging, and lab-on-a-chip devices. His current research interests include Fourier ptychography, coded ptychography, high-throughput imaging technologies, super-resolution imaging, and the development of optofluidics and chip-scale imaging solutions.
Dr. Zheng earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Caltech in 2008 and 2013 respectively. He is the recipient of the Lemelson-MIT Caltech Student Prize in 2011 for developing chip-scale microscopy solutions. He was awarded the Caltech Demetriades Thesis Prize in 2013 for his development of the Fourier ptychography technology. Dr. Zheng's research has resulted in one book and more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. The Fourier ptychography technology has also become one sub-chapter in Professor Joseph W. Goodman's classic textbook Introduction to Fourier Optics (4th edition).
Dr. Zheng serves as the faculty advisor for the Optica, SPIE, and Engineering World Health UConn chapter. He also serves as the Associate Editor of Biomedical Optics Express.

Dr. Sanjeev Kumar Mahto has completed his B.Sc. in 2004 from Hindu College, University of Delhi, India, M.Sc. in 2006 from Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi, India, and Ph.D. in 2011 from Kongju National University, Rep. of Korea. He is currently serving as a professor at School of Biomedical Engineering, IIT (BHU), India. He has several years of teaching as well as research experience and is also an active Editorial Board Member of American Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering and International Journal of Biosensors and Bioelectronics.
His primary research areas include the recreation of three-dimensional (3D) tissue constructs and functional entities of complex organs, biomaterial scaffolds, 3D bioprinting, Stem cells, biocompatibility assessment and characterization of microengineered tissue reconstructs, and testing of their physiological compatibility upon implantation in the animal models. In addition, he is also working in integrating microfluidics technology with tissue engineering and implementing them in fabricating on-chip tissue and organ models. Fabrication of biomedical microelectromechanical systems (Bio-MEMs) and lab-on-a-chip platforms for low-cost point-of-care diagnostics (POCD) and biosensor development is one of his major focuses.
