Terence is an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellow and leads the UCL Acousto-optics Group. The aim of the group is to investigate the interaction between sound and light in a diffuse medium, and its application in biomedical problems. Acousto-optic techniques can provide information about both the optical (e.g. colour) and acoustic (e.g. stiffness) properties of the medium. Current problems under investigation include acousto-optic imaging of tissue structure (e.g. breast), acousto-optic monitoring of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound lesion formation, and estimation of venous oxygen saturation with microbubbles. Terence’s other research interests include diffuse optics, physiology measurements, biomedical signal processing and teaching aid development.
