My research spans quantitative sub-cellular imaging, long duration live cell imaging and tissue/organismal-level imaging. I have a particular interest in studying the scope and biological consequence of natural phenotype variation at the single cell level, a task that has required developing and applying new technical methodologies. A major focal point of my work is the application of interferometric imaging to biological systems. I have also pioneered an approach to use high speed atomic force microscopy as a rapid, low cost method to quantify nucleic acid abundance in minute samples.
