Interim Department Chair and Professor
Professor Anastasio came to Washington University in January 2011 after his work as an Associate Professor in the Biomedical Engineering Department at Illinois Institute of Technology.
Professor Anastasio’s current research interests include the development of biomedical imaging methods, image reconstruction, and inverse problems in imaging and theoretical image science.
His current research projects include the development of advanced X-ray, optical, and acoustical imaging systems that are based on wave physics and can provide important structural and physiological tissue information. These projects include photoacoustic and thermoacoustic imaging, X-ray phase-contrast imaging, optical and acoustical tomography and holography, and improvement of existing clinical imaging methods.
