Researcher biography

Professor McIntyre develops and applies advanced imaging techniques to study flow environments. He conducts research within the Centre for Hypersonics where he implements a range of interferometric, spectroscopic and imaging techniques to probe the harsh environment generated in ground-based hypersonic facilities. He also has interests in the development of laser-based imaging methods in the field of Biophotonics including differential interference contrast microscopy and super-resolution coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy.
