We exploit diverse light-matter interactions and algorithms to measure architecture and dynamics of molecules, organelles, cells, organoids, and tissues. These advanced microscopy platforms enable data driven discovery of biological mechanisms and therapeutic opportunities in collaboration with Chan Zuckerberg Biohub’s initiatives, platforms, and partners. Our interdisciplinary research spans fields of optics, image analysis, and biophysics. 

We pursue technological advances in following areas:
  • Measurement of nanoscale order of molecules in 3D.
  • Label-free microscopy using phase and polarization of light.
  • Exploiting multiple light-matter interactions to obtain rich description of cells, organoids, and tissues.
Our current collaborative biological research is in following areas:
  • Analyzing lifecycle and biogenesis of viruses in mammalian cells to discover new therapeutic opportunities.
  • Mapping and modeling the dynamics of multiple organelles and molecules in live cells.
