Computational Biophotonics
Nicholas Durr, PhD
Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering
Johns Hopkins University

ABSTRACT: Computational biophotonics pairs optical system design with the development of intelligent algorithms to extract meaningful information from interrogated tissues (often via an unintuitive computational image). With the recent advances in artificial intelligence, there are many exciting opportunities to incorporate data-driven models with novel imaging systems to create impactful medical devices. In this talk, I will present our efforts in developing and translating computational biophotonics medical devices for a variety of healthcare needs, including: (1) improving the management of colorectal cancer with deep learning and a computational colonoscope, (2) non-invasive blood analysis with gradient-field capillaroscopy, and (3) increasing eye care accessibility with a low-cost, handheld wavefront aberrometer.

SPEAKER BIO: Nicholas Durr is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University and the co-Director of Undergraduate Design Programs in the Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley in 2003, then worked as a Research Engineer at Nellcor (now part of Medtronic). He completed his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from U.T. Austin in 2010, followed Postdoctoral Fellowship at Harvard Medical School, and an M+Visión Fellowship at MIT. In 2013 he co-founded PlenOptika, which he led as CEO until he started a faculty position at Hopkins in 2016.
