Norm is interested in laser source development and advancing current generation coherent imaging systems. His research particularly focuses on new signatures for functional and molecular tissue contrast, high speed swept sources and swept frequency combs, with applications in coherent imaging.

Norm was born in Friedrichroda (Germany) and received his undergraduate training in physics engineering in Jena. He completed his research dissertation at the Physics Department, University of Auckland where he was mentored by Dr Frederique Vanholsbeeck, Prof. Poul Nielsen, A./Prof. Stephan Coen and A./Prof. Stuart Murdoch.

Currently he is a postdoctoral fellow in the Bouma Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital's Wellman Labs, Harvard Medical School in Boston. He is mentored by Prof. B. E. Bouma and A./Prof. B. J. Vakoc and collaborates with leading researchers in photonics, coherent imaging, nanotechnology, neuroscience, pathophysiology and others.
