Dawid Borycki has received his MSc, and PhD (with honors and in the group of top 5% graduates) in theoretical physics from the Nicolaus Copernicus University (NCU) in 2007 and 2011, respectively. During his PhD he was also working as the software engineer in the Optopol Technology (Canon group) on the Canon's OCT HS-100. This work resulted in several US patents. After receiving his PhD he joined optical biomedical imaging group (at NCU) leaded by prof. Wojtkowski. His project there was to develop novel spatio-temporal optical coherence (STOC) light modulation.
In 2014-2016 he spent 2.5 years at University of California Davis, where he developed an interferometry-based near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS) for sensing optical and dynamical properties of the brain tissue and neurovascular coupling. This research was published in several high-impact scientific journals, including Optica.
Since August 2016 he is with the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw. His current research interest focus on combining statistical optics, physics, and software engineering to develop new or to improve existing noninvasive biomedical imaging modalities based on the low- and high-coherence interferometry. In particular he continues development of STOC method within the Maestro project.
Dawid also publishes books (with Microsoft Press /Pearson/ and Apress /Springer Nature/) and articles for professional programmers, and speaks at international conferences.
