Our lab recently moved to the UC Davis Biomedical Engineering Department from the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at MGH, where I previously raised over $1.5 million in Federal and Foundation grants as a principal investigator and faculty member. Our lab has developed a range of optical tools for diagnostics and basic science applications, focusing in particular on the quantitative study of organ physiology at the microscopic scale. Recent advances pioneered by our laboratory include all-optical methods of blood flow quantification, imaging of cytoarchitecture and myeloarchitecture with intrinsic contrast, and statistical methods and models of capillary velocity quantification. My PhD advisor and mentor at MIT was James Fujimoto. During my time at MGH, my only scientific and professional mentors at MGH were Cenk Ayata, Anna Devor, Bruce Rosen, and Eng Lo.
