Biography

Professor Igor Meglinski, MSc, PhD, is a Head of Opto-Electronics and Measurement Techniques Research Unit in the University of Oulu (Finland). His research interests lie at the interface between physics, optical and biomedical engineering, sensor technologies and life sciences, focusing on the development of new non-invasive imaging/diagnostic techniques and their application in medicine and biology, material sciences, pharmacy, food, environmental monitoring, and health care industries. He pioneered the application of Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy (DWS) to the non-invasive monitoring of blood flow and blood microcirculation, the application of circularly polarized light for practical cancer diagnosis, the generalization of Monte Carlo model for simulation of coherent effects of multiple scattering of light and the development of online computational tool for the needs of Biophotonics and Biomedical optics community. Professor Meglinski is author and co-author of over 230 research papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, proceedings of international conferences, 10 book chapters, few books and patents. He delivered over 500 presentations at the major international conferences, including over 230 invited lectures and plenary talks. He is Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of the Institute of Physics (London, UK), and Fellow of SPIE
