Congratulations Dr. Altaf Hussain

On 20th of May 2015, Altaf Hussain successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled:

Towards optical absorption imaging by combining photoacoustic and ultrasound modulated optical tomography

During his PhD research, W. Steenbergen was his supervisor and promotor. Altaf comprehensively investigated the combination of Photoacoustic (PA) and ultrasound modulated optical tomography (UOT) for quantitative biomedical imaging and demonstrated that,

Furthermore, based on the combination of PA and UOT, he developed a small animal imager, where he demonstrated the potential of the technique.  Much of his doctoral work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, and the examination committee appreciated his contributions to the field.
