Postdoctoral fellow

About Me

I am Francis Kalloor Joseph, a postdoctoral fellow at the Biomedical Photonic Imaging (BMPI) group in the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Twente. I completed my bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering in 2011 from Calicut University, India, and a master's degree in Communication and Signal Processing at Christ University, India in 2013. I did my Ph.D. at the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad in 2018. I was also a Fulbright doctoral research fellow (2016-2017) at Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Rochester. My research interest is in developing medical imaging systems for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. My current work focuses on photoacoustic imaging in combination with deep learning methods for tissue quantification.
