Tanveer Ahmed Shaik finished his Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and instrumentation engineering in 2015 from India and then he moved to Germany. He pursued MSc. in Scientific Instrumentation from the University of applied sciences Jena in 2017. He obtained his PhD in 2021 from University of Jena (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena). During his Ph.D., he worked at Leibniz Institute of photonic technology Jena and the University of California Davis, USA. One of his major interests is in using label-free techniques for biomedical applications, during his Ph.D. he studied biochemical properties of collagen with Fluorescence Lifetime imaging (FLIm), Raman spectroscopy, and Non-linear optical imaging techniques (Second-harmonic generation (SHG) and two-photon autofluorescence (TPF)). He also worked on clinical projects studying atherosclerosis and breast cancer using FLIm and Raman spectroscopy at UC Davis. After finishing his Ph.D., he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Leibniz Institute of photonic technology Jena and studied cancer cell lines and tissues using optical photothermal infrared imaging (O-PTIR) and Raman spectroscopy.
At the end of 2021, he joined AG Deckert and planned to study the biochemical and mechanical properties of viruses/virus-cells interactions at the nanoscale using vis – s – SNOM, IR – SNOM, and AFM – IR techniques.
