Biswajit Pathak currently works as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford. His current research work involves design and implementation of new adaptive optics based optical microscope systems for neuroscience applications. Prior to this he was working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Prof. Smithson’s group (Perception Laboratory), University of Oxford which involved development of a programmable aperture based imaging system for high resolution in-vivo imaging of the human retina in an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AOSLO). Dr. Pathak pursued his PhD in both theoretical and experimental optics at the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India where he developed a grating array based zonal wavefront sensor (Shack-Hatmann type) using computer generated holography technique. He received his Master’s Degree in Applied Physics with specialization in Biomedical Optics from Indian Institute of Technology (ISM) Dhanbad, India in the year 2011. His research interest is mainly in the fields of adaptive optics, diffractive optics, microscopy, computer generated holography, wavefront sensors, retinal imaging and image processing.
