Do you do any photoacoustic tomography, or is your work purely optical? I'm a math grad student in that area.
I'm also from Ohio, the Cincinnati area. Hi!
No, I do not do any work in that area, though I am vaguely familiar with it, having attended a few talks on the subject. However, the mathematics of solving the associated inverse problem is extremely relevant to the type of work that I do.
It's great to meet another Ohioan. I was just driving through Cincinnati a few days ago.
