Chemical and Biomedical Engineering


Changyu Sun is an assistant professor with a joint appointment with the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering and the School of Medicine’s Radiology Department. After earning his master’s and PhD in France, he did his postdoctoral training at MD Anderson and worked at University of Virginia as a senior scientist.

Changyu is an MRI researcher interested in developing novel strategies for rapid MRI acquisition and accurate reconstruction. His simultaneous multislice acquisition and reconstruction methods have been applied to cardiac cine, perfusion and strain MRI. The current research focuses on developing novel physics- and data-driven methods using deep learning, parallel imaging, non-Cartesian sampling and compressed sensing for cardiopulmonary applications. The goals of his research are to develop fast, accurate and automatic MRI workflow for diagnosis and treatment of patients.
