Our research group applies a fundamental understanding of lasers, optics, fluid mechanics, and transport phenomena to address problems in biomedical and engineering applications.
Current ongoing projects include:
- Laser tissue rewarming – developing methods for uniform laser and nanoparticle rewarming of cryopreserved specimens (cells, tissues, organisms)
- Surface erosion mitigation – studying methods to mitigate surface erosion due to cavitation using multiscale surface modification techniques
- Transparent “Window to the Brain” implants – development of transparent cranial implants for imaging and optical theranostics using transparent biocompatible materials
- Non-invasive perfusion monitoring – development and optimization of laser speckle imaging devices to monitor blood perfusion
The Agui-Lab is actively recruiting new Masters and Ph.D. students with interest and experience in these areas. Please Contact Us for more information.
