Fan Shi received a BSc degree in Acoustics from Nanjing University in 2010, a MSc in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012, and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College in 2015.  From 2016 He worked as a postdoc research associate in Imperial College. 

His research interests are elastic wave scattering, theory and numerical modelling, inverse measurement and wave imaging, mainly with applications in Nondestructive evaluation.  He also works on other areas utilizing acoustic wave as a sensing tool, such as rock physics, corrosion and medical imaging.  He is particularly interested in bringing fundamental understanding of wave scattering into real applications.
