Original Text

Now, about me. I started out in industrial optics, but changed direction after my grandparents died of cancer and stroke. I realized that we needed better imaging technology to aid early diagnosis and to provide a better understanding of the diseases. So I decided to devote myself to biomedical optical imaging. I now research and develop next generation medical imaging with applications ranging from diagnosing cancer to mapping brain functions and navigating medical micro robots for drug delivery.
