Mengying Shi, PhD

Biography

Mengying Shi completed her PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2020. Her doctoral research focused on a GPU-accelerated method for fast MV image simulation and the associated implementation on MV cone-beam CT and multi-layer imager optimization. Mengying received her B.S. and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where her thesis focused on a novel diagnostic kit for rapid quantitative measurements of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Mengying worked as a junior medical physicist in the Radiation Oncology department of Shanghai 6 People's Hospital from 2012 to 2015.

Mengying joined the Stanford University Physics Residency in 2020.
