Julianna is a Ph.D. student in Dr. Adam Wax's BIOS lab. She received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering with a specialization in Biophotonics at the University of California, Irvine. She conducted her undergraduate research at The Beckman Laser Institute where she gained experience with neuroengineering, laser imaging technologies, and image processing.
At Duke, Julianna researches different clinical applications of optical coherence tomography, an imaging technique that utilizes low-coherence interferometry to perform noninvasive, high resolution, cross-sectional tomographic imaging. In particular, Julianna’s research project aims to improve the utility of low-cost optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the operating room for intraoperative guidance. This new application of low-cost OCT will provide increased safety for both patients and medical professionals, while improving the quality of 3D visualization of biological tissues.
