We are always looking for motivated and enthusiastic graduate students who are interested in pursuing their Ph.D. (or Masters) research in medical instrumentation, imaging or signal processing. Students must have a good academic record, strong technical skills, and an aptitude for analytical and laboratory work. Prior experience/expertise in one or more of the following topics is prefered - optics, signal/image processing, electronic circuits, embedded systems. Interested candidates may email Dr. Parthasarathy at firstname.lastname@example.org with a recent CV highlighting relevant coursework/background, prior research experience, GPA and GRE scores. (Subject to avaiability of funding)
EEL 6935 / EEL 4935 / BME 6931: Biomedical Optical Imaging and Spectroscopy
This course will provide an introduction to biomedical optical spectroscopy and imaging, including principles
of light-tissue interaction, theoretical & computational modeling of photon diffusion, optical medical device instrumentation,
and clinical applications.
The objective of this course is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of optical spectroscopy and imaging of
biological tissue. The course will start with basic concepts of tissue absorption, scattering and fluorescence, and build on
these principles to rigorous analytical and computational models of light diffusion. Finally, the course will provide an
introduction to imaging and microscopy with light.
