Research interests

With background in atomic spectroscopy, optoelectronics and fibre optics, over the last two decades I am mostly involved in biophotonics research. At the Biophotonics Lab we develop novel optical methods and devices for non-invasive diagnostics and monitoring of human health condition, mainly focusing to human skin. Spectral, temporal and imaging analysis of optical signals from in-vivo skin may ensure quantitative assessment of various skin malformations, skin blood micro-circulation and overall cardio-vascular state of a person. The newly developed methods and concepts are implemented in lab-made prototype devices that pass preliminary clinical evaluation and further are optimized for real applications.  Our recent developments are reviewed here.
