Welcome! We are interested in the development and applications of novel optical tools to study essential problems in chemistry, biology and neuroscience. We apply diverse knowledge and skills in optics, photonics, physical chemistry, materials sceince and biology. Our current research is focused on fluorescence nanoscopy (super-resolution microscopy), label-free single-molecule imaging and fluorescent probes.
