About Me

Xiaoping Tony Hong, 洪小平

Currently I am an assistant professor at Southern University of Science and Technology. My current research focus on robotic sensing systems and applications. (My group website I am also consulting in DJI (previously worked there) and led the optics division and lidar group. Prior to that I work on gas sensing technologies at Honeywell International.

I got a PhD in physics/optics from the University of California, Berkeley (2009 – 2014). I did my dessertation in Feng Wang’s group, and also benefited significantly from the guidance of Yuen-Ron Shen.

I obtained my bachelor in physics from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. (2005-2009)

I am a fan of modern technology breakthroughs and scientific discoveries. Some of them are definitely from years of rigorous collective effort. But a lot of times I am just blown away by the fact that simple ideas can give rise to a whole new level of greatness. I am happy to discuss any science or technology you feel excited about.
