Andres Garcia Coleto
Andres Garcia Coleto is a PhD candidate who is conducting innovative research in the field of silicon photonics, and developing new applications of integrated silicon photonics for industry and health care. In his prior work, Andres has made valuable contributions in optics for telemedicine and created a new biomedical imaging device in the form of a swallowable capsule. Supported by a MathWorks Fellowship, Andres seeks to develop a novel, integrated-photonics-based augmented reality display consisting of a single transparent chip that displays 3D holographic images that only the user can see. Additionally, he is working on a chip-based solution for resin-based 3D printing, and using integrated silicon photonics to interface with the body through optical trapping. MATLAB is an essential tool in each of these pursuits. Andres’s research has great potential to advance silicon-photonics-based solutions for augmented reality, 3D printers, and other industrial applications, as well as next-generation medical tools offering significant benefits in human health.
