Portrait of Elliott Kwan
he, him, his

A PhD student in Optical Sciences, Elliott Kwan’s specific interest is in translational research, where science is implemented for improvement of human health. Kwan finds it astonishing how light can probe human tissue and be analyzed to obtain useful information. By developing quantitative imaging systems with advanced hardware, accurate models, and efficient processing, Kwan hopes to provide doctors with structural and metabolic information that can aid in patient treatment. Currently, he is working on a multi-resolution foveated laparoscope to aid in minimally invasive surgery. Treating illness and alleviating pain motivate him to succeed.
