Congratulations to Joseph Chue-Sang, a BME graduate student and member of the Medical Photonics Laboratory, for being awarded the SPIE Student Travel Grant and selected to present two talks and one poster at this year’s SPIE Photonics West conference in San Francisco, California. The conference is the largest laser and photonics event in North American with over 20,000 expected attendees from around the world.
Chue-Sang will present his talks titled, “Simulation of polarized light in birefringent samples” and “Imaging of skin surface architecture with out of plane polarimetry” on February 13th, 2016. As a member of the Medical Photonics Laboratory (MPL) at FIU, Chue-Sang’s research focuses on bio-photonics and the development of devices and methodologies for diagnosis of disease. His mentor and director of the Medical Photonics Laboratory, Dr. Jessica Ramella-Roman, said, “This award is a great honor for Joseph and a true testament to his hard work.”
Congratulations Joseph and good luck at the conference!
