Research Program: International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems(opens in a new window)


Dr. Fanpeng Kong received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from UNSW Canberra under the supervision of Associate Professor Andrew Lambert. His research focuses on adaptive optics for Astronomy, especially wavefront sensing of atmospheric turbulence using the combination of holographic or Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor (WFS) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices.

He is currently working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at UNSW Canberra and adjunct researcher at WSU on a project funded by the United States of America Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) for adaptive optics and advanced wavefront sensors using event-based cameras.

He is also interested in FPGA/embedded system design and works as a personal consultant for a startup company.
