Research

The central theme of our work is the development and application of modern laser spectroscopy and imaging methods to elucidate details and dynamics of chemical processes. Below you find summaries of, and links to, key research projects currently going on in the group.

Molecular Mechanisms of disease

We use a range of advanced biological and biophysical methods to probe the molecular chemistry of disease in live cells and in animal models.  Currently a major focus is on the study of protein misfolding and aggregation in neurodegeneration.

Microscopy Development

We perform both experimental and theoretical work to optimize speed, resolution, and sensitivity for applications ranging from single molecule biophysics to whole organism imaging.

Molecular Sensing

We model and generate supercontinuum radiation in optical fibres for applications in chemical sensing using instruments that are optimized for sensitivity and speed.
