Quantitative phase imaging in turbid media

Supervisor: Prof. RNDr. Radim Chmelík, Ph.D.

Institution: CEITEC-BUT, Experimental Biophotonics group

Field of Study: Advanced nanotechnologies and microtechnologies

About my project

The project is partially correlated with ongoing GAČR project where Radim Chmelík is Coinvestigator. Me and my supervisor Radim Chmelík are at the moment the only team members that are directly involved in this part of the project and are actively working on achieving the set goals. Quantitative phase imaging in turbid media is a major part of my doctoral project, therefore I am expected, and it is planned in a way, that I will carry out experiments and optimise image synthesis algorithms involving imaging through 1 scattering layer in the initial stages of the project. Data are already being prepared for a publication that I will compile with my supervisor in the begining of the next year. Than I will under the supervision of prof. Petráček conduct electromagnetic simulations of imaging process through 2 scattering layers. Also I am planning to carry out analytical derivations which prof. Chmelík will help with. Experiments will be carried out and image synthesis procedures developed. In last part of the project the process is analogical, I will carry out simulations for volumetric diffusers, analytical derivations and experiments.

Where I see myself in my career in 10 years

I would like to finish my PhD studies in 3 years if everything goes as planned. I want to carry out high quality work though, and I will not rush the project just to finish the PhD as soon as possible. I would like to work as an individual researcher in optics or photonics and hopefully in 10 years I will be capable of leading and supervising a group of people and I will be starting to form and lead a small research group.

What I like most about Brno

I like the extensive opportunities Brno provides either in career development or free time activities and despite being a busy city it maintains its peaceful and enjoyable atmosphere.
