Department / University Information


Dr. Wei-Chuan Shih is an Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering with a joint appointment from Biomedical Engineering at the University of Houston. Prior to joining UH, he was a Schlumberger postdoctoral fellow at Schlumberger-Doll Research, focusing on development of optical analysis of hydrocarbon fluids and automated remote monitoring system for offshore oil spills. He received B.S. and M.S. from National Taiwan University and National Chiao Tung University, respectively. He obtained PhD from MIT Spectroscopy Laboratory/ NIH Laser Biomedical Research Center under Prof. Michael S. Feld, working on optical spectroscopy for noninvasive chemical sensing and disease diagnosis. He also worked extensively on nano/microfabrication and N/MEMS. His research interests are in biophotonics, neurophotonics, microscopy, computational imaging, N/MEMS, and environmental sensing. He is a recent NSF CAREER Award winner (2012) and inaugural NASA Early CAREER Faculty Award (2012). He received the 2013 Award for Excellence in Research and Scholarship (university level). He was a recipient of MIT Martin Fellowship. Among his 22 peer-reviewed journal papers, he is the corresponding author for 13, and 11 were lead-authored by his students.
