Our primary research effort focuses on the physics of light scattering in biological tissues (and fluids) and how to exploit this scattered light to gain insight into the dynamcis, structure, and mechanics of biological tissues. Our primary focus is on the origins and applications of the speckle phenomenon. Research on speckle includes numerical simulations, statistical analysis of speckle, and the use of speckle in optical elastography.
Ultimately, our research focuses on understanding and exploiting the coherence and polarization properties of light scattered by biological cells, tissues, and fluids.
