Main Research Interests
Localization microscopy, single particle tracking, super-resolution microscopy, three-dimensional imaging, single molecule measurements, signal-processing, phase-retrieval, chromatin structure.
The lab focuses on method development for nanoscale optical microscopy. For example, extracting 3D and spectral information of nanoscale emitters using point-spread function engineering. In addition, we are utilizing these methods for biological applications such as studying chromatin structure and dynamics in vivo.
