Dr. sc. nat. Felix Scholkmann


Dr. Felix Scholkmann received his PhD at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, in 2014. A postdoc and research associate at the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory of the University Hospital Zurich as well as at the University of Bern, his research focuses on biomedical signal processing, biomedical optics (development and application of cerebral NIRS oximetry and fNIRS), neuroscience (neurophotonics), biophysics (bioelectromagnetics and photobiology) and integrative human physiology (integrated physiological measurement, computational modelling). He completed research stays at universities and institutions in the UK, Germany, Japan, Korea, Italy and the Netherlands. At the Department of Neonatology, he is involved in several projects using NIRS oximetry and fNIRS to investigate cerebral oxygenation and hemodynamics in preterm neonates.

Current projects:

  • Novel signal processing approaches for NIRS oximetry and fNIRS
  • Brain tissue oxygenation and hemodynamics in preterm infants
  • Systemic-physiology augmented fNIRS (SPA-fNIRS) and integrative human physiology
  • Computational physiology and biostatistics
