Welcome...

prof.dr.ir. W. Steenbergen (Wiendelt)

Full professor, and vice-dean research of the Faculty of Science and Technology

About Me

I am professor in Biomedical Photonic Imaging in the Faculty of Science and Technology, and Vice Dean Research in the same faculty. I obtained a Master degree in Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (1988), a PhD degree in fluid dynamics at the Eindhoven University of Technology (1995) and joined the University of Twente. In 2000 I was appointed as assistant professor in biomedical optics and broadened my scope to low-coherence interferometry and photoacoustic and acousto-optic imaging for biomedical purposes. In 2010 I became full professor and group leader of the Biomedical Photonic Imaging group. My current research interests are laser speckle based perfusion imaging, photoacoustic imaging, thermal imaging and quantification of photoacoustic imaging using acousto-optics.
