On July 8, 2013，Prof. Charles A. DiMarzio， the Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical and Industrial Engineering in Northeastern University visited to SIBET and gave a speech titled Microscopy Research for Dermatology. Prof. Daxi Xiong introduced the academic background and research fields of Prof. DiMarzio. Around 30 colleagues were present on the occasion and had active exchanges and communication with Prof. DiMarzio after his speech.
Prof. DiMarzio holds a BS in Engineering Physics from the University of Maine, MS in Physics from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Ph.D. in ECE from Northeastern University. He spent fourteen years at Raytheon Company, in coherent laser radar for air safety and meteorology. At Northeastern, he extended his interest in coherent detection to optical quadrature microscopy, a method of quantitative phase imaging, with several applications, most notably assessment of embryo viability. His interests include confocal microscopy for dermatology and other applications, multi--modal microscopy, spectroscopy and imaging in turbid media, and the interaction of light and sound in tissue. He led the development of the Keck three-dimensional fusion microscope with seven imaging modes on one instrument.
