- Image reconstruction: learning: filtered back projection
- Optical mammography, imaging scattering media, 3D volume scanner
- Optical modelling, advance raytrace software, investigating an optical system performance using OSLO and TracePro software.
- optical scanners for microscopy
- two-photon and confocal microscopy
Research in the area of scanners for laser scanning fluorescence microscopy particularly confocal and two- and multi-photon systems. Familiar with the Femto-second ultra-short pulsed laser (Ti:S) as an excitation source for two-photon microscopy. Develop and investigate an optical system performance using OSLO, the optics software for layout and optimization.
Develop a new 3D volume scanner which can be used for imaging a scattering media.

Team has made an outstanding contribution to enhancing the positive student experience through the creating and implementing of two novel remotely controlled experimental labs in Physics at the University of Newcastle, PHYS2240 course. The collaborative professional work of team members involved a development of the concept for a new apparatus, research, assemble apparatus, program the computer control code, write safety procedures and organising safe workplace.
