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 speckle based perfusion imaging, photoacoustic imaging, and quantification of photoacoustic imaging using acousto-optics.
