Research Interests

We focus on developing novel optical imaging methods, which enable us to measure and study the biological processes with unprecedented precision, such as structures and dynamics of molecular assemblies in living biological systems, interactions between molecules, and behavior of individual molecules, etc. We are greatly enjoying working at the interface of several disciplines, where light, biology and chemistry catalyze each other.
