Clemens Kaminski is Professor of Chemical Physics at the University of Cambridge UK. He heads the Laser Analytics Group who specialises in the development and application of state-of-art optical imaging methods to uncover chemical processes occurring on the molecular scale. We conduct research to investigate molecular mechanisms of disease in cancer, malaria and neurodegenerative disease. We also have an interest in studying basic interactions of light with matter to develop novel optical diagnostic techniques. Our group consists of physicists, engineers and lifescientists often working in unison in within large scale collaborative projects.
