About the Editors

Dr. David A. Boas is an Associate Professor at the Harvard Medical School and Associate Physicist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. He received his Bachelors Degree in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy NY in 1991 and his Doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, also in Physics. His research interests include the following: photon migration in highly scattering media with emphasis on diffuse optical tomography, clinical applications of diffuse optical tomography in brain and breast radiology and fundamental studies of brain function and stroke using diffuse optical tomography and optical microscopy. Dr. Boas has been an Associate Editor of Optics Express and Guest Editor of Medical Physics and Journal of Biomedical Optics. He is a member of SPIE and the Optical Society of America (OSA), and has served as Conference Program Chair for various OSA topical meetings.

Dr. Constantinos Pitris is an Assistant Professor in the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Cyprus. He completed his studies at the University of Texas at Austin (BS Honors in Electrical Engineering, 1993, MS in Electrical Engineering, 1995), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Ph.D. in Electrical and Medical Engineering, 2000), and Harvard Medical School (MO Magna Cum Laude in Medicine, 2002). He has worked as a research assistant at the University of Texas and Massachusetts Institute of Technology and as a postdoctoral associate at the Wellman Laboratories of Photomedicine of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. His main research interests cover the areas of optics and biomedical imaging. The goal of this research is the introduction of new technologies in clinical applications for the improvement of diagnostic and therapeutic options. He is an active member of the OSA and a reviewer for Optics Letters, Applied Optics and Biomedical O
