  • Assistant Professor, Center for Optical Research and Education (CORE) Utsunomiya University

In 2016, Prof. Hagen joined Utsunomiya University in 2016 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Optical Engineering. He previously led the R&D and Algorithm Development group at the successful startup Rebellion Photonics, Inc through its first five years, developing a first-of-its-kind snapshot infrared spectral imager for video-rate gas cloud imaging. This system is now in the process of changing the oil & gas safety industry. Before joining Rebellion, his career focused on the development of snapshot spectral imaging systems, involving the CTIS (computed tomography imaging spectrometer) at the University of Arizona, CASSI (coded aperture snapshot spectral imager) at Duke University, and the IMS (image mapping spectrometer) at Rice University. He is the author/coauthor of 50 technical publications and 6 patents.
