About Me

My lab exploits the scattering of visible light to resolve complex fiber structures in biological tissues. We further develop Scattered Light Imaging – a highly promising and versatile new imaging technique I created with colleagues in Jülich and which allows to resolve individual, crossing nerve fiber pathways with micrometer resolution. Research projects include hardware development, obtaining comprehensive brain structure information, multi-modal brain imaging, as well as clinical applications.

My Expertise:

  • Experimental and theoretical optics, scatterometry, and polarimetry
  • Design and engineering of optical imaging systems
  • Computational imaging
  • Multi-modal image analysis
  • Simulation of light-matter interactions
