Igor Meglinski is a Professor in Biomedical Engineering and Biophotonics at the School of Engineering & Applied Science and the School of Life & Health Sciences at Aston University (UK), where he has been since 2019. His research interests lie at the interface between physics, biomedical engineering, medicine and life sciences, focusing on the development of new non-invasive imaging/diagnostic techniques and their application in medicine & biology, material sciences, pharmacy, food, environmental monitoring, and health care industries.

Igor Meglinski received his MSc in Laser Physics (1992) from Saratov State University (Russia) and his PhD in Biophysics/Physics (1997) at the interface of Saratov State University and the University of Pennsylvania (USA), where he studied under the supervision of Professor Valery Tuchin and Professor Britton Chance (known as "the father of modern biophysics and biomedical optics"). After a brief stint as a research fellow at the Electro-Optics Technology Center at Tufts University (USA) and at the School of Physics at the University of Exeter (UK), he became Lecturer and Director of Laboratory of Biomedical Optical Diagnostics in the School of Engineering at the Cranfield University (UK) and 2007 Head of the Department of Biophotonics and Optical Diagnostics at Cranfield's School of Health. He was then invited by the University of Otago to develop research activities in the field of biophotonics in New Zealand. From 2009 to 2014 he worked as Head of Bio-Photonics and Biomedical Imaging at the Department of Physics at the University of Otago (New Zealand). From 2014 to 2019 he was a professor and head of the Optoelectronics and Metrology Laboratory at the University of Oulu (Finland).
