PhD in Biophysics, Nicolaus Copernicus University
Biomedical Applications of Photonics
Project Leader and Senior Researcher in biomedical applications of photonics, is developing novel tools and methods for: enhancement of imaging contrast, dedicated screening or diagnosis of various pathologies, or general research of biological samples.
His current focus is on enhancing volumetric optical imaging by various sources of contrast (motion, polarization, mechanical). He is also working hard to advance the space of miniature, fiber-based imaging probes for various imaging techniques.
Physical Optics and Biophotonics
The research in our group can be seen as a perfect interplay between physics, biology and chemistry. We are focusing on developing imaging techniques and using them in many biological and chemical systems.
Image-guided Devices for Ophthalmic Care
We seek to research novel techniques and develop instrumentation to address unanswered questions in vision science and unmet needs in ophthalmology and optometry.
