Yihe Hua's research focus during his Ph.D. was computational electromagnetics. He has since built a broad and solid knowledge of electromagnetic theory and simulation methods. During his 15+ years working in the field of MRI at GE, Yihe has applied himself to electromagnetic design and analysis of MRI superconducting magnets, ultra-high performance gradient coils, and RF transmit coils. He is also adept at studying bioeffects induced by MRI scanners, such as, specific absorption rate (SAR) and peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS). During his tenure with GE Research, Yihe has served as a key designer of a 1.5T low eddy current magnet, 1.5T low cryogen magnets, the NIH-funded 3T compact MRI scanner (80 mT/m, 700 T/m/s) and the DoD-funded MAGNUS gradient coil (200 mT/m, 500T/m/s). His current work focuses on the design and optimization of MR sub-systems for an NIH-funded 7T compact grant.
