Dr. Marinko Sarunic received his B.A.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Simon
Fraser University in 1998, and continued on at SFU with graduate
school. The topic of his M.A.Sc. thesis, completed in October
of 2001, was "BiIn: A Prototype Bimetallic Laser Activated
Thermal Resist for Microfabrication." From January 2001 to July 2002, while completing
his thesis work, Marinko joined JDS Uniphase
to develop MEMS based components for optical networks.
Marinko left JDS to pursue a Ph.D. from Duke University under
the direction of Dr. Joseph Izatt. The title of Marinko's
doctoral dissertation was "Advanced systems design for
Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD OCT) systems."
His research at Duke included development of a second harmonic
spectral domain OCT system, and phase processing algorithms to
extend the imaging depth of FDOCT systems to accommodate the
ocular anterior segment. At Caltech, Marinko's interests
included the development of a forward image endoscopic probe for
use during ophthalmic surgery.
Marinko left Caltech in September 2006 to join the engineering
faculty at his alma mater, Simon Fraser University, located in
Vancouver, Canada. His new lab webpage is http://BORG.ensc.sfu.ca
