Biomedical Optics and Biophotonics Imaging
Dr. Adie completed a BSc with First Class Honours in Chemical Physics in 1997 and earned a PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (specializing in Biomedical Optics) in 2007, both from The University of Western Australia. Between his undergraduate and graduate studies he worked as a Research Engineer at Q-Vis Limited – a startup company to commercialize solid-state laser technology for LASIK eye surgery. After completing his PhD, he did a postdoc in the Biophotonics Imaging Laboratory at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2013 he started as an Assistant Professor in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering, where his group develops novel optical coherence elastography and computational optical coherence microscopy approaches for mechanobiology and neuroscience research. Dr. Adie is the recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, NIBIB Trailblazer Award, and the Cornell Discovery and Innovation Research Seed Award.
