    Title: Assistant Professor
    Office: SECW 2210A Phone: 312-355-0838
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    We develop multiscale fluorescence imaging techniques for studying molecular interactions from the nanoscale to the mesoscale, with a special emphasis on understanding human immunity. The multidisciplinary imaging research combines single-molecule and super-resolution microscopy, multimodal imaging, nanotechnology, antibody chemistry, computational modeling, and T cell biology.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 10

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Background in any of the following areas is desirable:
    - Microbiology and molecular biology
    - Engineering
    - Biochemistry and biophysics
    - Bioimaging and microscopy

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Students are expected to work under the supervision of a graduate mentor, keep a lab notebook, attend weekly group meetings, and report research to the PI.
