University Lecturer

Head of Quantitative Imaging Group

Super-resolution imaging


  • 2005 MSci in Physics, University of Cambridge
  • 2009 PhD in Materials Science, University of Cambridge
  • 2009-2013 Research Associate, Laser Analytics group
  • 2013 University Lecturer, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

I have recently been appointed as a University Lecturer at CEB, having previously worked for three years as a post-doc with the Laser Analytics group. I continue to pursue research interests involving the theory and experimental practice of original imaging techniques, particularly in super-resolution microscopy. We collaborate on several applied research projects that utilise these techniques, for example in virus imaging, or video-rate screening of protein-drug interactions. I am also interested in the application of our advanced microscopy techniques to the study of synthetic materials as well as biological and biomedical subjects.
