Andrei Karpiouk received his B.S, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Laser Physics from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (Technical University), Moscow, Russia in 1992, 1994 and 2002, respectively.
Currently, Dr. Andrei Karpiouk holds a senior research scientist position in the Ultrasound, Imaging, and Therapeutics Research Laboratory which is part of Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University School of Medicine. The overall theme of his research is design, development and fabrication instrumentation and tools for biomedical and diagnostic imaging and soft tissues characterization. He has designed and manufactured a number of optical fiber-based prototypes of light delivery systems to be used with both market-available ultrasound imaging systems and custom-designed ultrasound probes. Also, he has been involved in design and development of various laser-based light sources for biomedical applications and optical measurements. Dr. Karpiouk has strong experience in design of experiments, manufacturing of miniaturized opto-mechanical parts and development prototype assemblies. I have significant hands-on experience in fiber optics, linear and non-linear optics, lasers and laser-based systems, manufacturing and alignment, micromachining using powered and manual tools, and computer design using software packages for mechanical (SolidWorks) and optical (Zemax) simulation. Finally, Andrei’s area of expertise includes an experimental work in laboratory and clinical environment.
Dr. Karpiouk’s academic and research experience over past 15 years has been centered on design and development of methods, instrumentation and tools for biomedical and diagnostic imaging and soft tissues characterization. He has published about 50 archival paper and proceedings and over 70 conference abstracts. His area of expertise includes light-tissues interaction, ultrasound imaging, photoacoustics, intravascular imaging, optical coherence tomography, elastography, and biomechanics.
