Paul Beard leads the Photoacoustic Imaging Group in the Departmental of Medical Physics and Bioengineering. The group was one of the early pioneers of photoacoustic imaging and has since grown to be one of the largest worldwide. It has a strong international reputation having been responsible for many significant developments in photoacoustic imaging instrumention and image reconstruction methods. The group is highly multidisciplinary and its members have a diverse range of backgrounds (optical physics, electronic engineering, acoustics, mathematics, microwave engineering, chemistry, computer science) allowing it to encompasses the full range of activities in photoacoustic methods.
