About Me

Prior to joining Widener, I received postdoctoral training and then worked as a research scientist at the Northshore University Healthsystem Research Institute, Evanston, Illinois, which is affiliated with the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine.

I received BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Northwestern Polytechnical University, China, and a PhD in electrical engineering from Oklahoma State University. I was a staff system engineer at the Institute of Remote Sensing Equipment in Beijing, China, and a staff research engineer at Motorola Global Software Group in Beijing, China.

Research Interests

Dr. Song’s research interests include pattern recognition and machine learning from fundamental modeling issues to multidisciplinary applications in robotic vision, artificial intelligence, brain-machine interface, biomedical imaging, multi-sensor fusion, and signal/image processing.
