Sathi Goswami, PhD

Description

Dr. Sathi Goswami obtained her PhD in biophysical chemistry from Saha Institute of Nuclear
Physics, under the University of Calcutta, Kolkata, India in 2018. During her PhD she studied
the interaction of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and their metal complexes with DNA
and proteins through spectroscopic and imaging studies. She also studied the effect of these
drugs and complexes on standard cancer cells HeLa to demonstrate the changes in the epigenetic
level. Then she joined as a postdoctoral fellow at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay,
Maharashtra, India in 2018. In postdoctoral studies her research was focused on the
characterization of drug-protein interaction using different spectroscopy. In September 2022, she
joined Integrated Structural Biology lab at ICTER as a postdoctoral fellow to work on the
structure and functions of various proteins involved in the visual cycle.

Jakub Bogusławski, PhD

University Degree:

PhD, from Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Wrocław, Poland

Position at ICTER:

Michał Dąbrowski, PhD

University Degree:

University Degree: PhD thesis in quantum optics, graduated in 2019 (Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, with honours)

Position at ICTER:

post-doc

Research Areas:

quantum optics, AMO physics, light scattering, optical imaging, wavefront shaping techniques

Description

During my PhD studies I participated in experiments on storage of quantum states inside atomic medium (so-called quantum memory). I have shown that it is possible to store and retrieve on-demand multiple photons as well as change the properties of resulting entangled state, using the spatial light modulator (SLM). The main motivation has been the creation of single-photon processor able to perform specific tasks for more complicated quantum circuits. Based on my previous experience I have started the postdoctoral fellow in the field of quantum optics with scattering media, having in the back of my head the applications for biological imaging. In my research project I tried to build a quantum simulator based on wavefront shaping + scattering processes in complex media. The fascinating world of light scattering brings me to the second postdoctoral position in the current group where I realized the project about two-photon fluorescence of the human eye to avoid scattering and absorption in the eye coming from visible-light excitation which paves the way for better understanding of a vision process.
