In the biophotonics lab we use light to explore biological tissue. In particular, we are interested in non-invasive, localized functional imaging of the brain.
Acousto Optic Imaging
We integrate light and sound to probe brain tissue and determine changes in perfusion.
Acousto-optics enables to localize the measurement volume and measure changes in blood flow.
Functional Brain Imaging:
We use fNIRS (functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy) to study hemodynamic correlation maps.
We develop new algorithms that can assess brain disorders (such as Major Depression or ADHD), based on non-invasive NIRS data.

Wearable sensors for healthcare applications
We are developing new sensors and algorithms for extracting quantitative parameters from multi-modal sensors.
