Tatiana Novikova

Dr Tatiana Novikova received her PhD in Physics and Mathematics from Institute of Mathematical Modelling, Moscow (Russia) and HDR (highest doctoral degree) in Optics from University Paris-Sud, Orsay (France). Since 2001 she is a research scientist at the group of Applied Optics and Polarimetry in the Laboratory of Physics of Interfaces and Thin Films in Ecole polytechnique, Palaiseau (France).  Her research activities focus on physics of polarized light, interaction of electromagnetic waves with matter, biomedical engineering and computational physics for the development of new Mueller-Stokes optical techniques for non-invasive optical diagnostics, target detection in turbid media, metrological applications of polarimetry in microelectronics. 
Dr Novikova served as a Guest Editor of Special Section of Journal of Biomedical Optics “Polarized Light for Biomedical Applications” (2016). She was a Chairman of Program Committee of 1st European workshop “Biophotonics and Optical Angular Momentum” (BIAOM-2016), 14-15 November 2016, Palaiseau (France).  Dr Novikova coordinated several national and international projects on applications of polarized light in metrology and biophotonics. She is SPIE and OSA member, author of more than 50 papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and proceedings of international conferences, 1 patent and 1 software industrial transfer. Dr Novikova has participated in more than 60 international conferences, symposia and workshops and has given 9 invited talks.
