I have a background in photonics and in my research I seek to make a difference in biomedicine. I am interested in all facets of biophotonics, biomedical optics and biological microscopy, as well as broadly interested in biomedical engineering and biophysics. I undertake research across the spectrum from basic/strategic research in tissue optics and biomedical optics to clinical and translational research in medicine.
This medical and biological focus means that I work in teams with a wide range of people from other disciplines, which is great fun, and means there is always so much new to learn.
Along the way, we need to build the optics, mechanics, electronics and software systems for new instruments. We have learnt that engineering is hard, but rewarding.
