Xavier Intes

Professor and co-Director BioImaging Center, Biomedical Engineering

Xavier Intes received a Ph.D. degree in 1998 in physics from the University of Bretagne Occidentale (France) for his contributions in characterization of propagation of optical scalar waves in highly diffuse medium. He then joined Prof Britton Chance laboratory in 1999 as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. He held simultaneously postdoctoral appointments in the departments of Biochemistry and Biophysics, of Radiology under the mentorship of Prof Britton Chance and the department of Astronomy and Physics under the mentorship of Prof Arjun Yodh. In 2001, he acted as the Director of Research of the Medical Diagnostic Research Foundation, Philadelphia, USA, and the Director of Research of Optical Devices Inc., Philadelphia, USA. In 2003 he joined Advanced Research Technologies Inc as as ART's Chief Scientist. He is an AIMBE fellow.
