Zeinab Hajjarian, PhD
Instructor
My current research involves measuring mechanical properties of phantom and tissue samples and extracting visco-elastic modulus using Laser Speckle Micro-rheology. I am planning to extend my work to diagnosis of cardiovascular disease via characterizing various atherosclerosis plaques.

Visiting Scientist
My research interest is diagnostic technology using intracoronary laser speckle imaging (ILSI) for detecting unstable coronary plaques in vivo. I am working on optical and mechanical design for the ILSI system and development of data processing algorithm.
     
 
Markandey Tripathi, PhD
Research Fellow
My research interest is in the development of novel optical sensing and diagnostic technologies. Currently, I am working on the development of laser speckle imaging based optical thromboelastography (OTEG) for blood coagulopathy assessment. This project includes design and fabrication of prototype OTEG device, development of data processing algorithm, and validation of the technology with clinical studies.
