Dr. Jacqueline Gunther received her B.E. in Biomedical Engineering from the Stony Brook University, New York, USA in 2011. In 2013 and 2015, she received a M.S. and M.Phil, respectively, both in Biomedical Engineering from Columbia University, New York, USA. Her PhD work involved using diffuse optical tomography to monitor breast cancer patients undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy and develop methods to predict response to treatment. In 2016 she received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Columbia University. Also, in 2016 she joined the Biophotonics Group at Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork, Ireland as post-doctoral researcher.
Her research interests include modelling light propagation in biological media for innovative applications, acousto-optical tomography, and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy.
