I am a Postdoc at the Medical University of Vienna, Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. My current research relates to multimodal preclinical imaging, where I develop a novel optical coherence photoacoustic microscopy system.
In my PhD I researched novel optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems for early diagnosis of several eye diseases like glaucoma. I mainly focused on Doppler OCT (D-OCT) and the development of a three beam D-OCT system capable to quantitatively measure total retinal blood flow in-vivo without prior knowledge on the vessel geometry, which is a requirement for standard D-OCT.
My main scientific interest lies in multifunctional optical imaging, photoacoustics, OCT-angiography, Doppler and polarization sensitive OCT and in/ex-vivo clinical and preclinical studies.
