Assistant Professor

About Me

I am Francis Kalloor Joseph, an Assistant Professor at the Biomedical Photonic Imaging (BMPI) group, University of Twente. I did my Ph.D. at the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (2018). I was also a Fulbright doctoral research fellow (2016-2017) at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I received NWO Veni grant (2021). My expertise is in combined optical and acoustic imaging. I am developing quantitative photoacoustic imaging methods to study the composition of carotid plaques and to identify tumor margins.
