Michael Amissah

PhD Researcher

Michael received his BSc. Engineering Physics from the University of Cape Coast, Ghana in 2010 followed by a PgD. Satellite Communications in a United Nations sponsored program at the Obafemi Awolowo University of Nigeria in 2012. All other things being equal, he has always wondered how the world would have existed without any form of light. His passion for light and its applications has led him to the studies of Optics and Photonics. In 2015, he graduated from the University of Eastern Finland with MSc. Photonics. During the period of his studies, he worked with researchers from the Biophysics of Bone and Cartilage Centre in Kuopio on the use of near infrared light for characterization of articular cartilage degeneration. He afterwards, worked for Microsoft HoloLens as a laboratory engineer and later joined the Biophotonics arm of IPIC in 2018 where he is working on ultrasound modulated light-based imaging within complex media.
