RESEARCH FIELDIn the neurophotonics lab, I am studying Alzheimer’s disease (AD) development and pathophysiology. My research expertise is in vascular biology, and therefore, I am trying to study the vascular defects in mice’s brain during AD as well as their neuronal and cognitive loss. For this research, I will use two-photon imaging to capture live capillary blood flow in the brain, confocal imaging of brain tissues for vascular examination, and different methods and techniques to study various behavioral tests for AD mice.
RESEARCH INTERESTI have completed my undergraduate and master’s both in biomedical sceince which leads me to become a researcher to contribute my skill as well as knowledge in the health industry. Now, my research area focuses on the understanding of neuroscience specially in the Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dimension. This research is to learn and understand the pathological cause of these dementia disorder.
RESEARCH INTERESTMy research interests are primarily on biomedical optics for in vivo functional brain imaging with a home-built multi-photon laser scanning microscope to allow high spatiotemporal resolution utilizing an advanced volumetric scheme. Also, I am interested in an animal model for the study of neuropathic pain mechanisms.

RESEARCH INTERESTI am an intrepid fighter in my major (dentistry) but I had the enthusiasm to advance my knowledge horizons in the Biomedical science and engineering and become a Medical Researcher so that I can expand my study area with Life Science and technology. I want to explore myself at the global level, and utilize my knowledge for the welfare of human being. My area of interest mostly related with surgery. Currently, l am transecting mice cornea. Trigeminal nerve have very broad level in medical area and corneal nerve is related with opthalmic nerve which is one of three branches of trigeminal nerve
KEYWORDSTrigeminal nerve, Dry eye syndrome, in-vivo, in-vitro, and so forth
RESEARCH INTERESTMy fascination with vivo imaging began immediately after I completed my degree in Biomedical Engineering. This is an excellent opportunity for knowledge acquisition regarding vivo imaging, it allows me to grow my interest in different aspects of the material. My goal is to eventually explore the deep sides of Biomedical in the world. For that matter, I am currently developing an advanced fluorescent microscope with elongated point-spread function for fast pseudo-3D imaging, for functional neurophotonic.
RESEARCH INTERESTNeuroscience is a challenging field of study as it studies the functional anatomy of the nervous system and the mechanism of any abnormality or behavioral changes. As I graduated from the college of medicine and I have a good background in the nervous system, I’m interested in studying brain ischemia that increased recently due to advanced ages. I developed a brain ischemia mouse model and I introduce safe and tolerable management using photobiomodulation.
RESEARCH INTERESTProper utilization of light can control biological phenomenon and help observe the microscopic range of living cells through imaging. Furthermore, it is essential for research in neuroscience that is a very interesting field of research. I majored in chemistry in college and am currently researching Near-infrared light stimulation therapy in the olfactory bulb photothrombosis rodent model. Through structural and functional images of blood vessels and neurons, I want to quantitatively measure the effect of light of a specific wavelength in vivo and prove its effect. In addition to the current research, I would like to solve the hidden problems of the phenomenon occurring in the brain based on various in vivo and in vitro research experiences.
RESEARCH INTERESTI majored in undergraduate of mechanical engineering at GIST. My primary research field is optimized light control for in vivo application. In order to observe the structure and functionality of the bio sample at microscopic level, optimized light distribution at the target area is very important. Currently, I am developing a light sheet microscope with high-speed large area brain imaging.
