Postdoctoral fellow, his research activity includes modeling the neuronal nets created from a multitude of different neuronal populations and data analysis.
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.
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.
I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group led by Prof. M. Wojtkowski at the Institute of Physical Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences. I joined this Group in 2019 after obtaining my Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Warsaw.
I specialize in biomedical imaging, polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography, quantitative micro-elastography, and time-resolved fluorescence measurements. These advanced techniques pave the way for groundbreaking discoveries in medicine.
Vineeta Kaushik obtained her PhD in Biophysics from the University of Delhi South Campus, New Delhi, India in 2020. During her doctoral studies she has experienced in biophysical and biochemical characterization of archaeal protein along with specialized in bioinformatics approach. She joined the Integrated Structural Biology lab at ICTER in March 2021 as a Postdoc fellow to work on the structure and functional elucidation of various proteins involved in the visual cycle.
Agata Kotulska’s engineering and master’s thesis was carried out in the Fiber Optics Group, and concerned the theoretical and experimental investigation of the properties of transmission parameters of optical fibers.
As a continuation of her scientific work, Ms. Agata Kotulska carried out research in the field of optical spectroscopy, at the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Wrocław.
Ms. Agata Kotulska’s doctoral thesis, whose supervisor was Prof. Artur Bednarkiewicz, concerned the luminescence properties of nanocrystals doped with lanthanide ions. The goal of the conducted research was to understand the relationship between the composition and compositional architecture with the functionality of such nanoparticles for modern applications of luminescent labels. The thematic scope of dissertation included the characterization of the properties of Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) and Photon Avalanche (PA) phenomena. Ms. Kotulska conduct experiments related to the aforementioned phenomena, including measurements of emission spectra and luminescence lifetimes, as well as providing physical models and analysis of the spectroscopic processes studied.
Currently, Dr. Kotulska is employed in the Optical Physics and Biophotonics group (Optical Imaging team) at ICTER as a Postdoctoral Fellow.
In her free time from research, Dr. Agata Kotulska enjoys hiking in the mountains.
He received his PhD degree from Warsaw University of Technology. His PhD studies focused on developing new digital holographic microscopy techniques and systems for measurement microoptics.
After obtaining PhD degree, he cooperated with various commercial companies: Kongsberg Automotive, Difrotec. He previously worked as a data scientist at Transition Technologies S.A. where he gained experience in the areas of machine learning and deep learning.
At ICTER, he combines Deep Learning, software development experience, and photonics expertise to develop new or improve existing noninvasive biomedical imaging methods.
