My lab, the Optical Science Laboratory (OSL) is located in room 334 of the Egan Engineering and Science Research Center. You can find directions at at http://www.ece.neu.edu/groups/osl/directions.html.
My office is in 216 Lake Hall. You can enter Nightingale from Forsyth Street. Walk straight ahead to the elevator or turn left before the elevator for the stairs. At the second floor turn right 180 degrees from the elevator, and walk away from Forsyth Street into Lake Hall. 216 is the first office on the left.
My book, Optics for Engineers, is now available. Click on the book or the link above for more information from my publisher, CRC Press.
The title is "America Needs More Scientists and Engineers," but the content of the article says, "In 2010, only 4.9 percent of American jobs were in science and engineering, down from 5.3 percent in 2000 --- the first such decline since 1950." It seems to me that this is evidence that the country needs less scientists and engineers, rather than more.

Our group, the Optical Science Laboratory (OSL) is particularly interested in those optical imaging techniques which involve coherent detection, multi-modal imaging, multi-wave imaging (where light is used in combination with another type of wave such as ultrasound). Our applications include biological and medical imaging, including embryos, skin, collagen, and lung.
Here is my weekly schedule for the present term:
I now have an office for my associate-chair activities in 409 Dana. These are primarily for students other than those in my classes or research group. For those students, I have office hours in 216 Lake.
My normal hours on campus are from 9AM through 6PM, but this varies considerably, and I am usually fully scheduled every day, so the chance of catching me with a free moment is very small. For that reason, I prefer to arrange meeting times in advance. Send an email first, and schedule a meeting time.
We enjoy travel almost anywhere, attending plays, concerts, and the occasional film.
For outdoor activities, I enjoy running (see Greater Boston Track Club for running information in Boston), bicycling, both for getting around the city (in the good weather at least), and for pleasure (see my page on car-free biking around Boston, http:// http://www.ece.neu.edu/faculty/dimarzio/bike/ ), and skiing almost every winter weekend at Killington, VT, and occasionally elsewhere.
Some pictures of leisure activities: Our annual bike trip from Boston to Provincetown (25-26 July 09, thanks to Joseph for the photo), skiing at Alta in 2008 (Thanks to Rob), our annual mountain biking trip to Vermont (24 Jul 06, Thanks to Timon), and my first time on a horse (30 May 2010, thanks to Dave for photo, and to Jason and Reno for the adventure.)
"This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as I live it is my privilege - my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I love. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got a hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."
--George Bernard Shaw
ABOUT THE BACKGROUND: My favorite winter passtime is skiing. I put this background together from a detail of a photograph taken at Park City, in 2003. There are four copies in different orientations so that the tracks (and more importantly, the brightness levels) line up as the pattern repeats.
