Faculty Spotlight

Audrey Ellerbee

Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering
Audrey Ellerbee

The Ellerbee lab is interested in developing novel forms of coherent microscopy for studying cellular dynamics and for assisting in the diagnosis of clinical pathologies. Presently, our lab is mostly focused on advanced technology development of optical coherence tomography and its derivatives. We are currently exploring projects related to ophthalmology, blood analysis, and multimodality imaging that incorporates fluorescence.

SPRC is proud to support the National Photonics Initiative. The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) is a collaborative alliance among industry, academia and government seeking to raise awareness of photonics - the application of light - and drive US funding and investment in five key photonics-driven fields critical to US competitiveness and national security: advanced manufacturing, communications and information technology, defense and national security, energy, and health and medicine.
