Roarke Horstmeyer

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Physics

I am a new assistant professor in the Biomedical Engineering department, and I also have a secondary appointment in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. I mostly work with optics, machine learning, and algorithms. Prior to arriving at Duke, I was an Einstein postdoctoral fellow at Charitè Medical School in Berlin, where I worked with Prof. Benjamin Judkewitz to apply digital optical phase conjugation in neuroscience.
