Andreas Velten is an Associate Scientist in the Medical Devices Group at the Morgridge Institute for Research and the Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation (LOCI) at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Dr. Velten is also an affiliate member of the Camera Culture group at the MIT Media Lab. He obtained his PhD in Physics at the University of New Mexico designing lasers for ultra sensitive phase measurements.
Dr. Velten's research aims to develop new and improved scientific tools through
innovation in signal processing, computational imaging, and ultra-fast optics.
He was chosen as one of the world’s top innovators under the age of 35 by
MIT's Technology Review and received the Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award
Dr. Velten was chosen as one of the 35 top innovators under the age of 35 by MIT's Technology Review in 2012 received the Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award in 2012. He has authored many peer reviewed articles, conference papers, and patents, as well as a book. His work has featured in several top media outlets including the BBC, the New York Times, and the Economist.
In his free time he enjoys hiking, sailing, and vocal performance.
