I am an optical physicist and the focus of my research is to develop noninvasive light-based methods that can monitor tissue health by quantifying blood flow, oxygen content and consumption. In particular, I am currently investigating the ability of these methods to quantify joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis with goal of developing a noninvasive technique for monitoring treatment response in this debilitating disease.
