Research interests
  1. Application and implementation of super-resolution imaging (Structured Illumination Microscopy and Single Molecule Localisation Microscopy) together with users of the Wolfson Light Microscopy Facility in a variety of research projects, eg, novel stains for organelles, cell division in bacteria, Weibel Palade bodies formation and secretion, cell division in bacteria, localisation and clustering of tetraspanins in mammalian cells, correlative approach combining STORM with atomic force microscopy (AFM)
  2. Implementation of newly emerging image analysis methods for super-resolution imaging
