Research interests & project ideas:
Eventual EN+ project topics: - distant photoplethysmography video-imaging system for monitoring of skin microcirculation changes, e.g. for anaesthesia efficiency control during surgeries (patented); - device for distant diffentiation of skin melanoma from other pigmented lesions by parametric spectral imaging; - single-snapshot RGB multispectral tissue imaging by means of a WO-patented method and device; - autofluorescence photo-bleaching based skin lesion diagnostics assistance system; - occlusion-response based optical method and device for early detection and evaluation of sepsis.
