Dr Irina Kabakova is a Junior Research Fellow at Imperial College London, working in Photonics Department of Blackett Laboratory.  Irina has obtained her PhD degree in 2012 from the University of Sydney for her work in nonlinear signal processing using periodic media. After that she joined Nonlinear Phononics group at the Centre for Ultrahigh-bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) as a Postdoctoral Research Associate and worked on the development of novel light sources using the process of stimulated Brillouin scattering. In 2015 she moved to FOM-Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where she worked in NanoOptics group on a project related to near-field imaging of plasmonic and photonic nanostructures. Her research interests at the moment are focused on the development of Brillouin imaging technique and its application to stiffness measurements of biological tissues and biomaterial.
