Jadwiga Milkiewicz, MSc

University Degree:

MSc Chemistry (Jan Długosz Academy; University of Leeds)

Position at ICTER:

Research Assistant

Research Areas:

optical engineering, femtosecond spectroscopy, multiphoton processes, fluorescences

Researcher's ORCID Id: 0000-0002-1789-2266

She finished her master in Chemistry. For most of her professional carrier, she worked on developing and using various spectroscopic systems such as gas phase ion imaging or fluorescence up-conversion.

She joined Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group in 2019 to work on developing a pioneering ophtalmoscopic technique based on two-photon excited fluorescence from the retina of the human eye. Currently, her main focus is on building an innovative device that will be used to study the deformation of the cornea induced with air puff.
