Catherine Fitzpatrick

My goal is to develop a low-cost capsule endoscope that incorporates holographic techniques to provide enhanced contrast for detecting oesophageal cancer. I am developing a phase-sensitive widefield imaging system alongside investigating the engineering constraints of a capsule architecture.
