Über den Autor
Dr. Mark A. Haidekker received an education in Electrical Engineering at the University of Hannover in Germany and a PhD degree in computer science from the University of Bremen Germany. His research originally was focused on algorithm development in computer aided radiology, notably the improvement of estimation of the individual fracture risk in osteoporosis based on CT images.
Between 1999 and 2002, he was employed at the University of California, San Diego, ¿rst as postdoctoral research fellow and later as Assistant Research Scientist. In 2002, he assumed a position as Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri in Columbia. During this time, his research shifted towards biomechanical properties of the cell membrane, and in the process, he developed new ¿uorescent reporters (molecular rotors) for the real-time imaging of microviscosity and local shear stress in biomembranes and bio¿uids.
Since 2007, he is employed as Associate Professor in the College of engineering at the University of Georgia. His research involves x-ray tomography, ¿uorescent and hyperspectral imaging.
