    New Faculty Member Joins Cal Poly’s Graphic Communication Department
    SAN
    LUIS OBISPO — Xiaoying Rong, a Ph.D. candidate from the Department of
    Paper Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Imaging at Western Michigan
    University, has joined Cal Poly’s Graphic Communication Department as
    an assistant professor specializing in substrates, inks, toners and
    sheet-fed press technology.
    Rong has extensive experience in
    industry and research. Her industry experience includes working as an
    engineer at China Printing Cooperation in prepress quality control,
    equipment maintenance and technical training, specifically on color
    reproduction and lithographic color printing.
    She has conducted
    research in printability, formulating printing ink, new technology of
    recycling paper fiber, digital image processing, color management and
    computational research in papermaking.
    “Ms. Rong brings to Cal Poly
    strengths in crucial technical areas representing major classes in our
    curriculum,” said Harvey Levenson, head of Cal Poly’s Graphic
    Communication Department. “We remain committed to educating students in
    the core competencies of the graphic communication industry, and
    substrates, inks, toners, and printing press applications are part of
    this core. As digital press applications continue to grow, educating
    our students in toner technology becomes particularly vital. Ms. Rong
    will lead Cal Poly’s involvement in this area.”
    Rong will manage a
    substrates, ink and toner lab as well as a sheet-fed press lab. “The
    substrates, ink and toner lab is designed to educate students on the
    testing of consumables and on how to understand the relationship
    between inks, toners and substrates,” Levenson said. The sheet-fed
    press lab houses highly sophisticated electronic and digital four-color
    presses.
    Rong earned a Bachelor of Engineering degree in graphic
    arts technology at Beijing Institute of Printing and a Master of
    Science degree in paper engineering, chemical engineering and imaging
    from Western Michigan University. She also earned an MBA degree from
    Beijing Institute of Technology.
