Biography

Yide Zhang was born in Huanggang, Hubei, China, and received the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Automation from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, in 2014. He came to the University of Notre Dame in 2014 to pursue the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering. In 2017, he received the Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate working with Dr. Scott Howard in the Biophotonics Research Group. His research is interdisciplinary and focused on developing new types of fluorescence microscopes that could advance the work of other researchers and medical personnel in a wide variety of fields. His research interests include multiphoton microscopy, fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, high-speed imaging, computational imaging, and adaptive optics. He received the Graduate Student Research Award for 2016 from the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Notre Dame. He is also the recipient of the 2017 Berry Family Foundation Graduate Fellowship from the Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics Initiative (AD&T) of the University of Notre Dame.

Summary of Activities/Interests

K.I.S.S.: A "Simple" Solution to a Common Situation

April 5, 2018

Most people recognize “K.I.S.S.” as an acronym for “Keep it simple, silly” – a warning about the cost of sophistication with origins in military hardware. Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) graduate student, Yide Zhang, has found it’s a practice that has served his research as well.
