Dr Andrey Dunaev received his diploma in Instrumental Engineering (MSc) and diploma in Management (MSc) at Orel State Technical University (now - Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev), Orel, Russia, in 1999. In December 2002 he was awarded a PhD degree for his work on biomedical equipment “Method of control of the absorbed radiation power in epidermis during low-level laser therapy”.
His research interests include the development of biomedical non-invasive optical diagnostics methods and equipment – such as laser Doppler flowmetry, tissue reflectance oximetry, fluorescence spectroscopy and so on.
Topics of research:
- metrological support of devices for laser Doppler flowmetry;
- method and device for diagnostics the functional state of peripheral vessels;
- method for control functional status of microcirculatory-tissue systems during the cold pressor test;
- methodological and instrumentation provision of fluorescence spectroscopy for biomedical applications.
Since 2005 he was associate professor (docent) of Department “Instrumentation, metrology anf certification” at State University ESPC (now - Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev). He was teaching lectures on “Laser and light apparatus in physiotherapy and surgery”, “Optoelectronic Devices in Diagnostics, Therapy and Surgery”, “Basis of Bio spectrophotometry”, “Modeling Biological Processes and Systems” etc.
Since 2010 is chief executive Scientific-Educational Center (SEC) “Biomedical Engineering” at State University ESPC (now - Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev). At 2011-2013 years worked as Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Dundee (Scotland, UK) on the "MEDI-LASE" project (now as associate staff of Division of Physics at University of Dundee).
Since February 2014 is a Leading Research Fellow at Scientific-Educational Center "Biomedical Engineering" Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev.
