Liu Linbo received B.Eng in Precision Instrument in 2001, and M. Eng. in Optical Engineering in 2004, from Tianjin University, China. He received PhD in Graduate Programme in Bioengineering (GPBE) in 2008 from School of Medicine, National University of Singapore. From 2008-2011, he received his postdoctoral training in Wellman Center in Photomedicine, Harvard Medical School (HMS) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) where he developed and established a new generation of OCT technology termed micro-Optical Coherence Tomography (µOCT). Dr Liu was promoted as an Instructor in Dermatology at HMS before he joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering as a Nanyang Assistant Professor in 2012.
