Research interests

My research interest and expertise started with medical laser applications and expanded to a broad range of surgical equipment and imaging modalities. 
I have developed special imaging techniques for diagnostics and to study the interaction of equipment with the patient in view of safety, treatment quality and development of new applications. My advanced imaging facilities are being used for testing medical equipment of international companies. I am working in close collaboration with the clinical professionals and has practical experience in the OR assisting in surgery with complex technologies. I am active in patient safety, innovation and valorisation of new medical technology with several patents and devices being commercialized. I have published over 150 papers, proceedings and book chapters.
