Jelena Muncan is currently working on development of aquaphotomics as a science and a technological platform for a multitude of measurement applications in various fields. She is based in Biomeasurement Technology Laboratory, Graduate School of Agricultural Science, Kobe University, Japan headed by the aquaphotomics founder – Prof. Dr Roumiana Tsenkova.
She received her Ph.D. diploma in Biomedical Engineering at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Belgrade in 2014, where she also started her research and teaching career (2008), later being promoted to an assistant (2014) and assistant professor (2017). She spent two years as a postdoctoral research fellow of Japanese Society for Promotion of Science, in Biomeasurement Technology Laboratory, Kobe University until 2019, when she decided aquaphotomics is to become her main field of work.
Her research is directed at reaching better understanding of structure of water in aqueous and biological systems and their resulting properties and functionality, thus providing a common platform for development of novel non-destructive, non-invasive measurement and monitoring technologies, advancing towards the development of bio-photomodulation strategies based on water-light interaction.
