My research is on optics, photonics and medical imaging. I develop new types of optical endoscopes that improve detection of diseases such as cancer by combining ultra-thin optical fibre technology with nanostructured surfaces that allow control of light in new ways. Previously, I designed and constructed a prototype holographic fibre endoscope that images optical intensity, phase and polarisation. This improves early detection of oesophageal cancer compared to conventional intensity-only endoscopes, as I demonstrated by imaging real diseased tissue samples. Further, the long (2m) and thin (500um diameter) geometry promises easier integration with existing clinical procedures, and paves the way for future imaging of previously inaccessible areas, e.g. the brain. I am also interested in low-cost imaging to develop new capsule endoscopes for early cancer detection in the oesophagus and plasmonic metasurfaces for low-cost multispectral imaging.
