Dr. Sun received his BSc degree (Physics) in 2004 and MSc degree (Particle Physics) in 2007, both from Peking University, China. In 2007, he joined the National Institute of Metrology (China) as an engineer working on research and development of a national primary standard facility. After that he returned to study for micro- and nano-fabrication at Heriot-Watt University and obtained his PhD degree in 2012. He developed a deterministic fabrication method for the fabrication of 3D micro- and nano-structures by focused ion beam machining and won the EPS thesis Prize. Following on from his PhD, he worked as a research associate in an EPSRC-funded Heriot-Watt Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre (HW-IMRC) project where he successfully developed the first nano-scale diamond cutting tools enabling the fabrication of nanostructures over large area with high efficiency. In 2013, he was appointed as a lecturer in School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University, where he leads a micro- and nano- manufacturing research group and manages an SEM/FIB.
