Biography Peter E. Andersen received his MSc.E.E. in 1991 and his Ph.D. in 1995 from the Technical University of Denmark, and since 2015 Dr. Andersen is Fellow of OSA and Fellow of SPIE. Dr. Andersen is with DTU Health Tech at the Technical University of Denmark, where he is group leader of the Biophotonic Imaging Group, and Head of DTU Health Tech PhD School. From 2006-2013, he was Research Professor at Department of Atomic Physics, Lund University, Sweden. He has more than 20 years of research experience within biophotonics, biomedical optics, light source technology, multimodal imaging concepts comprising optical coherence tomography, multiphoton tomography and nonlinear microscopy, and translation of these modalities into clinical applications, including endoscopic applications. Dr. Andersen leads or has led several large-scale European collaborative research programs within the above-mentioned topical areas. Dr. Andersen has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal/conference papers within the above-mentioned topics, 14 book chapters, and one book as co-editor. He holds five patents, of which three have been transferred to industry. Dr. Andersen is co-founder and co-inventor of Norlase ApS based in Denmark – a company that manufactures compact laser-based medical devices for applications in ophthalmology. Currently, Dr. Andersen is editorial board member of Light: Science and Application, Journal of Biomedical Optics, associate editor of Journal of Biophotonics, and he served Optics Letters as Topical Editor from 2008-2012 and Deputy Editor from 2012-2018. He is serving on, or has served on, several international conference committees as Program or General Chair, including CLEO (2016-2019), and Conference Committee Member at Photonics West.Link to Biophotonic Imaging Group Please visit the group homepage and learn more about our activities and competencies.
