Kosta Falaggis

Assistant Professor

Education: Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds, UK

Courses Taught: NA

Dr. Falaggis earned his Ph.D. in the area of Multi-Wavelength Interferometry and High Dynamic-Range Sensors at the University of Leeds, UK within the group of Catherine and David Towers (2006-2011). Dr. Falaggis was also a post-doctoral research associate at the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, where he focused his research on Holography, Phase Retrieval Techniques, and Computational Wave-propagation techniques within the group of Malgorzata Kujawinska (2012-2015). His current research interests are (1) Coherent and Incoherent Optical Measurement and Imaging Techniques (Interferometry, Holography, Phase Retrieval, Deflectometry, Fringe Projection Profilometry, Photogrammetry), (2) Metrology of Freeform Optics and Measurements in Harsh Manufacturing Environments, (3) Computational Methods in Wave-Optics (Wave-Propagation and Diffraction phenomena), and (4) Machine Learning Techniques (Data-Driven and Physics-Guided Methods).
