In 2010 Shamil received a bachelors degree in Radiophysics and Electronics from the Kazan Federal University, Kazan, Russia. After his first degree he continued his studies in Physics at the Kazan Federal University and in 2012 graduated with an MSc.
Role in the Project
Shamil joined the University of Dundee as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher on the PHOtonic tools for Quantitative imaging in tissUeS (PHOQUS) project. His work on the PHOQUS project will involve conducting research in novel, compact femtosecond lasers and their application to 2 photon, second harmonic and third harmonic imaging in fixed and live tissue samples. This will entail training in tissue imaging by multiphoton microscopy, physiology and pathophysiology of development and progression of disease (e.g. colonic cancer) and in the application of novel laser systems for assessment as illumination sources.illumination sources. His research will be undertaken in the Central Imaging Facility, College of Life Sciences and the Photonics and Nanoscience Group at the University of Dundee, Dundee, UK.
