Kevin is an optical engineer, image scientist, and biomedical engineer, interested in developing imaging techniques to solve new problems in biology and medicine. During his PhD in the department of biomedical engineering at Duke University, Kevin developed a new computational extension of optical coherence tomography (OCT), called optical coherence refraction tomography (OCRT), which enables higher quality and higher resolution 3D images of a wide variety of biomedical samples.
As a Schmidt Science Fellow, Kevin will work in the department of electrical engineering and computer science at UC Berkeley, where he will develop high throughput 3D imaging techniques at frame rates approaching or even exceeding 1000 frames per second. Such imaging specifications are challenging to achieve simultaneously and will require the integration of computation, hardware, and optical physical principles to solve.
Kevin plans to collaborate with neurobiologists and behavioral scientists in developing high-speed 3D imaging techniques to facilitate new scientific discoveries.
