Sergey has a solid theoretical knowledge of laser physics from his Engineering degree from the National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI”, Moscow. He also has a Specialist Diploma in Mathematics from the same university. Before joining the PHOQUS project, he worked as a research assistant in the Fiber Optic Research Center of the Russian Academy of Science. During this period he was developing single-frequency fiber lasers and using PBG fibers for sensing applications.
Role in the Project
Sergey joined the University of Dundee as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher on the program PHOtonic tools for the Quantitative imaging in tissUeS. His work on the PHOQUS project is focused on developing multimode fibre-based real-time holographic systems for endoscopy.
