Research Interests

My research is in computational imaging, which involves the joint design of optics and algorithms for microscopes with new capabilities. For example, we aim to achieve high-resolution images across very wide field-of-view with minimal capture time. I focus on biological applications for multi-dimensional large-scale microscopy, including phase imaging, fluorescence and 3D. In all our projects, both optics and signal processing are key to achieving efficient non-traditional imaging modes using simple hardware. The aim is to break the conventional view of microscopy in order to more efficiently capture previously inaccessible information.
