Dimitrios Kapsokalyvas, PhD received his degree in Physics and his MSc degree in Optoelectronics from the University of Crete, Greece, where he worked on novel photosensitizers for the photodynamic treatment of leukemic cells. Afterwards he moved to Heidelberg, Germany where he worked in the Max-Planck Institut für Medizinische Forschung on a theoretical model of nonlinear photobleaching in multiphoton excitation.
In 2007 he joined the Biophotonics group (Pavone group) of LENS, University of Florence, Italy as a PhD candidate. He received his PhD in 2011 from LENS with a thesis entitled ‘In-vivo imaging of human skin. Macroscopic and microscopic optical investigation of skin diseases’. He continued his work in LENS, as a post doc researcher, on the development of a novel Polarization Multispectral Dermoscope and a custom Multiphoton Microscope for imaging skin diseases.
In 2012 he moved to Maastricht University where he specialized in vascular imaging. Presently he has a post doc position in the Molecular Cell Biology department. His scientific interests are in optical microscopy, mainly multiphoton microscopy, super resolution microscopy (STED) and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM). He also focuses on the development of novel methodologies for tissue and cell imaging, and image analysis. He acts as a reviewer for scientific journals such as Journal of Biomedical Optics, Journal of Biophotonics and Healthcare.
