My research concentrates on the development of advanced imaging techniques for light sheet microscopy

The overall focus of our research is cardiac imaging in the zebrafish ( danio rerio ).

I am currently a research assistant to Dr Jonathan Taylor, working on incorporating computational phase mask imaging for an extended depth-of-field into a single/selective plane illumination microscope (SPIM).

Our goal is rapid non-mechanically-scanned 3D imaging and improved image synchronisation for unusual zebrafish hearts.

My background

I was awarded a PhD in Physics from Durham University in 2016; my thesis is titled "Adaptive beam control and analysis in fluorescence microscopy" and encompasses light sheet fluorescence microscopy, adaptive optics, high dynamic range imaging, and beam shaping. Prior to this, I graduated from Durham University with a Mphys in Theoretical Physics in 2011.
