Kosta Popovic

Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics and Optical Engineering

Dr. Kosta Popovic is spending his second year as a visiting faculty member for the department. His expertise is intraoperative multimodal imaging systems for surgical guidance, and his past research projects have had him part of a patent in this area. He has completed several research with undergraduate students on optics systems. Dr. Popovic is a reviewer for the IEEE’s Transactions on Nuclear Science journal. He co-advises the institute’s SCUBA Club and was the team captain for two years on his collegiate varsity rowing team.
