About Me

I have a background in medical engineering and physics. Currently I work on hybrid multispectral photoacoustic-ultrasound imaging. In the horizon 2020 PAMMOTH project we developed a new hybrid photoacoustic and ultrasound imaging system for breast cancer diagnosis. The system is now in the hospital, where we are investigating the ability of the system to recover screening-detected lesions in the breast.
