I enjoy working in the collaborative environment of VUIIS where multiple disciplines are able to come together in order to advance research in different areas. My work includes overseeing data acquisition from our near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems.


I am currently designing a study in order to explore the effect of melanin on the quality of NIRS data and ways to improve said data. Additionally, I am working on updating our preprocessing pipeline for data obtained from our NIRS and OCT systems and assisting with an HRpQCT study with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) patients.
