Evan Jelly

Research Scientist

Evan Jelly joined Duke University's Biomedical Engineering Department as a Ph.D. student in 2018, holding a BS in Physics from The College of New Jersey, and an MSc in Biophotonics with distinction from Cardiff University.

Evan conducted research with GE Healthcare Cell Technologies, as well as Florida State University before joining Dr. Adam Wax's BIOS lab as a research associate in March of 2017. Evan’s current research is focused on developing novel delivery schemes for optical coherence tomography and is active in both scientific outreach and policy initiatives. As a student at Duke, Evan was the recipient of the John T. Chambers Fellowship from the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics.
