Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland

Adam Liebert received the M.Sc. degree in fine mechanics from the Warsaw University of Technology in 1991, the Ph.D. and D.Sc. degrees in biomedical engineering from the Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IBBE PAS) in 1997 and 2005. In 2001-2004 he worked as the postdoctoral researcher in the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt in Berlin – Division Medical Physics and Metrological Information Technology. Since 2008 he was the head of Biophysical Measurements and Imaging Department and since 2014 he is Director of the Instutute. He is Full Professor since 2015. His field of research activity is related to tissue optics, assessment of light-tissue interactions and application of optics and photonics in biomedical measurements. He worked on development of laser-Doppler technique for microcirculation assessment and validation of this technique in multiple clinical applications. He works on time-resolved near infrared spectroscopy and its application in non-invasive transcranial monitoring and imaging of brain tissue oxygenation and perfusion.

He is the founding member of the Polish Society for Biomedical Engineering. He served as Secretary General and member of the Council of this society and was Secretary of the Committee of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering PAS in years 2007-2014. Dr. Liebert is an expert of the Polish National Science Centre and Polisch National Centre for Research and Development involved in evaluation of projects in biomedical engineering. He is topical editor in peer-reviewed journals Opto-Electronics Review and Bulletin of the Polish Academy of Sciences Technical Sciences and member of the editorial board of the Journal Technology and Health Care. He was member of board of directors of the European Society for Enigineering in Medicine (ESEM) and he is member of the SPIE.
