Dawid Borycki, D.Sc., Ph.D. specializes in biomedical optics, statistical optics, and software engineering. Dawid graduated with honors from Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, Poland (MSc. in 2007, Ph.D. 2011). In 2022 he received habilitation degree (D.Sc.) from the Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering Polish Academy of Sciences. 

He co-authored more than 25 scientific articles published in peer-reviewed journals such as Optica, Scientific Reports, Biomedical Express, Optics Express, and Optics Letters. He also holds two patents issued by the US patent office. In addition, he published 11 books and over 60 articles on programming, cloud technologies, and machine learning.  

Dawid has more than 14 years of experience in research and development. He specializes in the field of biomedical engineering, especially in biomedical imaging. He completed scientific projects in various scientific institutions (Nicolaus Copernicus University, University of California Davis, Polish Academy of Sciences). In addition, he served as a consultant in various commercial companies: Canon, Optopol Technology, Optina Diagnostics. 

His most outstanding scientific achievement is the creation of novel optical methods which use light interferometry. The first one, interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS), is for non-invasive brain sensing. The second one, spatiotemporal optical coherence tomography (STOC-T), is for ultra-fast human retinal imaging at cellular resolution.  

At ICTER, Dawid developed computational algorithms for STOC-T
