I am a PhD candidate in Biomedical Engg. at MTU. Water and biological tissues act as excellent sources of optical scatterers. Scattering from them give rise to fascinating optical phenomena. Speckles and optical phase singularities are among them, and are the subjects of my investigation. My research focuses on ways to make use of these scattering phenomena for novel ways of imaging and analyzing motion in biophysical systems. Outside of work, my time is spent exploring the beauty of the U.P. and the surrounding areas, as well as trying out the excellent variety of student organizations at Michigan Tech.
I am grateful to the Michigan Tech family for all the support I have received during my journey here.
