Zhe Hou (TU Delft) did his undergraduate study in optical engineering at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China (http://opt.zju.edu.cn/english/). In 2011, he graduated as a bachelor of engineering (with honors). His bachelor thesis is the study and simulation of thermal-optical actuator.
Right after his bachelor, he got a scholarship from Erasmus Mundus program. He spent his first year at Warsaw University in 2012 and the lat 11 months of his Master at Delft University of Technology. After a short return to Chine, Zhe started to work as a PhD candidate on the ADOPSYS project within the group of Optica, TU Delft. The topic of his project is saddle point (SP) method for imaging and non-imaging systems. In cooperation with his colleagues, Zhe is trying to see the regularity in the optical design landscape.
