Biography

Dr. Jami Shepherd (Johnson) completed her PhD at the University of Auckland in 2017.  She then took a position as a postdoc at the Laboratoire d'imagerie biomédicale at Sorbonne Université in Paris, France before returning home to New Zealand as a research fellow. 

Research | Current

I am interested in both studying and harnessing light and sound waves to develop new capabilities for medical imaging.  My research includes photoacoustic, ultrasonic, and laser-ultrasonic imaging, ranging from image reconstruction, processing, and analysis to novel experimental methods and sensing techniques.
