Biography: Lukas Wesemann is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Meta-Optics at the University of Melbourne node of the ARC Center of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Devices (TMOS). His research focuses on meta-optical devices that miniaturize optical computation and image processing. These devices have potential for use in future mobile medical equipment as well as attachments to camera lenses and compact virtual reality equipment. He received his PhD degree from the University of Melbourne in 2021 in the field of optical metasurfaces for image processing applications. Prior to that he worked in the field of nonlinear optics and femtosecond laser writing during his MSc at the University of Muenster, Germany. Outside of work, Lukas enjoys playing the violin and going camping in the beautiful national parks around Melbourne.
