Oscar Carrasco-Zevallos



I am a senior graduate student in the Biophotonics Group at Duke. My research focuses on the development of optical imaging technologies for various biomedical applications. My current projects include intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) to guide ocular surgery, eye-tracking for motion-compensated OCT ophthalmic imaging, and novel OCT designs for pediatric imaging. I am currently searching for post-doc opportunities and hope to become a professor in the field of biophotonics in the near future.
