We are an interdisciplinary research group with a focus on developing new tools and applying them to important problems in both the physical and life sciences- from fundamental physics, astrophysics and nanoscience to bioimaging, brain science and medical diagnostics. Current areas of research include:
* Super-resolution optical imaging and functionalized electron microscopy for brain science and other bioimaging applications.
