Helene Isler studied Physics at ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institue
of Technology in Zurich) and obtained her MSc degree in 2013. She started her
PhD at the BORL group right afterwards and followed a Master of Advanced
Studies in Medical Physics at ETH simultaneously. She finished her MAS degree
in 2016. Her PhD is in the field of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and its
application in a clinical setting. She is interested in abdominal tissue
oxygenation monitoring specifically as low levels can point to dangerous health
conditions. Ms. Isler also works on phantoms to test NIRS devices on their
function as well as to allow for calibration and verification. Silicone
phantoms with long durability and stability as well as short-lived but highly
human-like blood phantoms belong to her expertise.
