Welcome to the Kallepalli Biophotonics and Optics Lab

We work at the interface of biomedical imaging, biophotonics, novel imaging systems, and image analysis. Through our collaborative research projects, with students and academic faculty, we are keen on unravelling new information either from light-matter interactions or from images.

Our lab works on a range of research projects, ranging for hyperspectral image analysis from airborne platforms, microscopes and microscopy to image analysis and machine learning.

If you are curious, keen to work with us or up for a coffee and a chat, get in touch!
