Bachelor of Science, Tsinghua University (Beijing, China)


Cheng recieved his B.S. degree in Microelectronics from Tsinghua University in 2012. During his undergraduate years, he conducted research on microfluidic cell-trapping chips in Prof. Zheyao Wang's lab. He has also been an exchange student and a summer intern at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where he worked on surface plasmon resonance biosensors in Prof. Aaron Ho-Pui Ho's lab. Cheng joined the Loncar group in 2012 as a PhD student at Harvard University. His current research interests include photonic crystal biosensors and Lithium Niobate nonlinear nanophotonics.
