Dr. Marcos Oliveira got his doctoral degree in electrical engineering with emphasis on photonics at the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil (2014). In 2015, he assumed for two years the postdoctoral research position in the Biomedical Optics and Imaging Laboratory (LOBI) at Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil. Currently, he occupies the postdoctoral research position in the Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology (CBST) at UCDavis Medical Center in Prof. James Chan’s research group. His main current research interests are related to label-free optical techniques that can be used to in the field of biophotonics, optical microscopy and imaging, and with the development of systems using Raman line scan, microspectroscopy and optical tweezers to explore biological sample, in particular cancer cells.
